About HITAP and its International Unit
HITAP was established in 2007 as a non-profit research organization which reports to the Bureau of Policy and Strategy, Office of the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Public Health, Thailand. HITAP’s main responsibility is to assess a range of health interventions and technologies, including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, clinical practices, individual and community health promotions and disease prevention programs, as well as social health policy.
HITAP International Unit (HIU) is established in 2014 with the aim of empowering and providing practical lessons on the potential use of the use of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) and priority-setting for Universal Health Coverage (UHC), especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). From then on, HIU has collaborated with international partners, e.g. the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Global Health and Development Group, Imperial College London, World Health Organization, and PATH, acting as a regional hub, helps countries build up their capacity on HTA. In order to expand its capacity to meet with growing demands in providing technical support to country partners, HIU is currently looking for a technical staff who are experienced in the field of HTA or a broad range of health economic methods and their application to contribute to research and capacity building activities in LMIC.
