Webinar program

What is WHO HEAT Tool?
The online HEAT tool was developed by WHO to facilitate evidence-based decision-making. It calculates the economic value of the health benefits resulting from physical activity. This is due to the reduction in mortality caused by cycling and walking. The tool is intended to be part of comprehensive cost–benefit analyses of infrastructure projects and it complements existing tools for economic valuations. The tool will supplement the information needed for better urban planning.

Webinar is arranged with Skype for Business
The webinar is brought to you with Skype for Business.
