POLICY COHERENCE FOR HEALTHY PRODUCT ENVIRONMENTS; Lessons from Tobacco, Alcohol and Food Governance

Tuesday, June 25, 2019 19:00to21:00
Room 501, Goodman Cancer Center, 1160 Pine Avenue West, Montreal, QC, H3A 1A3, CA


Policy works best when is it aligned across different sectors of government. This premise has led to decades of health advocacy attempting to infuse health goals into all government policies, from trade, to agriculture, to finance. However, health considerations are but one of many intersecting considerations facing governments.

This panel brings together four individuals who have spent their career grappling with the question of how governments can establish policies and programs that advance health and other social goals.

Individual presentations will be followed by an engaging panel discussion on the complexities of policy coherence for healthy product environments.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg Nations. McGill honours, recognizes, and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
