What are the main questions policy-makers ask when making decisions about a proposed healthy public policy? On what topics do we need evidence? Public health actors may be called upon to work on public policies and therefore interact with policy-makers at different levels. However, they often find that the content of their discourse does not meet all of the evidence needs of policy-makers. This session introduces a framework for analyzing public policies developed by the National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP). The framework is guided by a public health perspective while at the same time taking into account policy-makers’ concerns.
