On the science and the use of HEAT (Health Assessment Economic Tool)
A local example: Lausanne
To facilitate evidence-based decision-making, WHO has developed, in collaboration with experts from different disciplines, the health economic assessment tool (HEAT) for walking and cycling. HEAT is an on-line tool that enables economic valuations of health effects of cycling and walking, based on the best available evidence and international expert consensus. The HEAT for walking and cycling has grown from a simple idea to a successful worldwide application in ten years. The presentation will explain the science used and showcase selected examples of use.
