While describing and understanding the determinants of population health are essential tasks in epidemiological research, evaluating the potential effects of social, environmental and public health policies on population health and equity also constitutes a central task. We aim at capitalizing on various natural experiments and modern quasi-experimental methods to evaluate different policies such as early warning systems or air pollution regulations.
