This program was designed to build capacity for public officials to manage the public health and health system implications of mining industry activities in order to contribute to social and economic growth and sustainable development. The program’s overarching objective was to “seed” capacity for the undertaking of health impact assessments (HIA), and the development and implementation of health action plans in Mongolia and other low- and middle-income countries (LMIC).
Learning curriculum was developed combining Canadian expertise in HIA with a systematic review of the health impacts of mining in LMIC-resource sector contexts. The Learning Development Program was held in Dalanzadgad and Ulan Bator, Mongolia from April 27-May 7, 2015. Learn more.
