Global Policy Forum


HTAi’s mission is to support and promote the development, communication, understanding and use of HTA around the world as a scientifically based means of promoting the introduction of effective innovations and the effective use of resources in health care.

The HTAi Global Policy Forum provides a unique opportunity for senior representatives from public and private sector organizations using HTA to support decisions or recommendations about product development and coverage to meet one another, members of the HTAi Board and invited international experts, for strategic discussions about the present state of HTA, its development and its implications for health care systems, industry, patients and other stakeholders. The aim of the Forum is to provide an environment where senior representatives can engage in strategic discussions informed by the perspectives of their different organizations without the constraints associated with discussions of specific products or organizational policies.

Membership in the HTAi Global Policy Forum is by application. From time to time (typically around April each year), HTAi issues calls for expressions of interest in joining the Global Policy Forum. Final decisions on membership are made by the HTAi Board of Directors on advice from the Global Policy Forum Organizing Committee.
