HIIC Evidence of Impact

The purpose of this paper is to highlight to policy makers, at a national and local level the contribution Health Issues In the Community (HIIC) makes to national and local outcomes and to provide supporting information for those already committed to the delivery of HIIC.

The approach of the paper is to outline different policy and legislation in Scotland and then show how a particular community-led intervention - carried out as part of the HIIC course - has contributed to any associated outcomes.  Download the paper here.
