HTAi’s annual meeting is taking place this week in Cologne. The meeting brings together HTA experts for discussions, panels and presentations.
This year’s HTAi (Health Technology Assessment international) annual meeting has the theme of ‘HTA beyond 2020: Ready for the New Decade’ and will focus on the future international development of HTA.
The theme of the meeting is how HTA efforts, and international cooperation between HTA bodies, will adapt to changes over the coming decade. Considerations raised include the expansion of medicines access (and thus demand for HTA) within developing countries, and the increasing appetite for joint-HTA efforts. EUnetHTA has reported that its Joint Action 3 (JA3) will play a significant role in discussions.
