The immigrant populations supplement: New resource for HEIA users

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) has identified equity as a key component of quality care. To support improved health equity, including the reduction of avoidable health disparities between population groups, the MOHLTC has developed the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) tool.

Attend this webinar, where the MOHLTC will launch a new Immigrant Populations Supplement for HEIA. This supplement outlines the unique needs of, and special considerations for immigrants, refugees and other migrants. It is designed as a resource to help planners, service providers, policymakers, and researchers identify and address potential unintended health equity impacts of a policy, program or other initiative on immigrant subgroups.

This webinar will provide an overview of the HEIA Immigrant Populations Supplement and discuss how it can be used during a HEIA.

The webinar will consist of a 15 minute presentation followed by a 15 minute Q & A session.

When: Wed, 28 September 2016, 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM
