Description

In step 3 of the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA), mitigation, we identify strategies to minimize the negative impacts of health inequities and maximize the positive. This step is often seen as the favourite one: we get to identify what actions we are going to take! However, people can get stuck on this step. How do we identify potential actions? How do we know which ones to select? How do we ensure that our mitigation strategies are practical and will have the effects that we want? In this webinar, Andrea Bodkin will guide you in three simple steps to navigate step 3 of the HEIA template. You’ll leave the webinar with concrete ideas on how to generate, identify and implement mitigation strategies.

This webinar is suitable for new practitioners of HEIA with a basic understanding of HEIA. If you are new to HEIA, this short video will give you a basic introduction to the tool.
