Tuesday, November 3, 2015 : 11:10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

David McQueen, ScD, Consultant, Tucker, GA
I will present the conceptual connections between the SDH and HiAP and emphasizing the way will be implemented the decision of the Ministers of Health in the America Region in using the HiAP's Strategy to achieve SDGs.  Most health professionals are still unaware of the overall process of defining SDGs as well as the current concept of HiAP and the interrelationships between both political processes. The intent of the panel is to cover these gaps with conceptual approaches and examples of the Americas region.

Learning Areas:

Diversity and culture
Public health or related public policy

Discuss the synergies between the agenda on the sustainable development goals and that on Health in All Policies putting public health professionals as main stakeholders in the development of both areas of policies.
