To manage healthcare demand and available resources, and to provide the adequate health services to population, Health Intervention and Technology Assessment (HITA) is originated. HITA is defined as a multidisciplinary process to summarize information the medical, social, economic, organizational and ethical issues of a health intervention or health technology in a systematic, transparent, unbiased, robust manner. HITA becomes an increasingly important part of priority setting and decision-making process in resource-limited settings. It is particularly in the form of primary research and evidence synthesis. According to the 67th World Health Assembly, HITA is recognized as a tool in support of universal health coverage (UHC) to inform policy decision. Member states are encouraged to introduce HITA as well as share lessons learnt with regard to implement evidence-based health policy. Given the increasing role of HITA, participants especially who coming from non-health and/or non-economic background including staff from the Ministry of Finance and development partners, understanding of HITA’s basic aspects are crucial. World-renowned experts in HITA will be invited to provide theoretical sessions of HITA and its application, followed by sharing countries’ experiences.
This meeting is aimed at the introductory course primarily for those without prior background in health and/or with limited experience of HITA and health economics.
All participants who are beginner will be fulfilled with the principles of HITA and its application especially for UHC.
