Health Intervention and Technology Assessment Program (HITAP) was established in 2007 as a non-profit research organization which reports to 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 aims to cultivate the public interest and motivate participation from all sectors in society in order to efficiently distribute and allocate the limited resources to fulfill its public objectives. HITAP recognizes the importance of working at the international level and has been working with partners to support universal health coverage, especially in low and middle income countries by empowering and providing practical lessons on the potential use of Health Technology Assessment (HTA). As a multi-disciplinary HTA organization, HITAP not only focuses on producing the highest standard of research, but also puts a high priority on knowledge translation and dissemination of our research findings to all stakeholders, for instance policy makers, health practitioners, the media, and the public both nationally and internationally.
