Is High Income Country Health Technology Assessment (HTA) relevant to Middle Income Countries?
Resource allocation in health is universally challenging. Pursuing a strategy of evidence-based decision-making and using tools such as Health Technology Assessment (HTA) can help address issues relating to both affordability and equity when allocating resources. HTA is a mechanism or process to support evidence informed decision making in the health system, in a consistent, fair and transparent process occurring within a well-defined legal framework.
In this webinar, panellists shared perspectives on the current approach to HTA and processes for HTA structure, practices, application, capacity, gaps, and solutions in their respective jurisdictions and what lessons can be learned from the 30 years of Australian HTA experience. The webinar is relevant to those researchers and policymakers with an interest in Health technology assessment and resource allocation in health.
