New Perspectives on Healthy Public Policy

The 2020 APPAM International Conference in Toronto, Canada will be held Thursday July 23 - Friday July 24 2020, hosted by University of Toronto and American University at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. 

Healthy public policy, or the consideration of population health and health equity in all areas of policy, is vital to the achievement of sustainable and healthy communities. Policies affecting food systems, housing, education, immigration, transportation, employment and social assistance impact the social determinants of health and can have intended and unintended impacts on health and equity. This conference will showcase research examining how programs and policies affect health-related behaviors and outcomes, as well as inquiry into the development and analysis of healthy public policy. Policies and programs studied may have the objective of directly improving health or may affect health indirectly.
