Fast-tracking priority setting across settings: is Health Technology Assessment (HTA) transferability a solution?

Plenary session on HTA at ISPH: 29th April 2022 at 9 am CET!


Do not miss the highlight of the International Conference on Priority Setting in Health (ISPH) on 29th April 2022 at 9am CET: a brilliant discussion amongst leading-edge HTA experts.


The aim of the session is to explore the growth of HTA as a priority setting mechanism in countries, with a particular focus on transferability of institutional arrangements, methodologies, assessments and decisions.


The session will discuss the phases of HTA that countries undertake to prioritise and introduce technologies in their health systems, or “how to HTA?”.


The session aims to leave the audience better understanding how transferability can help countries or regions fast track decisions and facilitate the introduction of much needed technologies to address the need for health systems transformation.


The following questions will be addressed:


  • Across LMHICs, what is the role that transferability of HTA mechanisms or processes can play in priority setting?
  • What are the pitfalls and expected upsides?
  • Can it deliver value for money?


In addition to the above, the panel’s presentation and discussions will draw a mapping of HTA initiatives and trends across regions of the world thanks to unique insights and unique access to granular data.
