How to participate


Health Technology Assessment (HTA) aims to inform decision-making to promote equitable, efficient, and high-quality health systems. The participation of patients, caregivers, and civil society in HTA processes can contribute to the assessment of the value of the technologies being carried out fully informed and in an even more transparent and fair way for all stakeholders.
