Project Summary

National HTA methods and process guidelines (hereon in referred to as HTA guidelines) have been identified as a key factor in establishing a well-functioning HTA system (1,2). A number of resources already exist for countries seeking to develop their own HTA guidelines, such as the Practical Guide on Evidence-Informed Deliberative Processes, the iDSI Health Technology Assessment Toolkit, among others (3,4). However, to our knowledge, there exists no specific guidance for the development and successful adoption of good quality HTA methods and process guidelines. In particular, there is a gap in terms of how to start, set up the system, and evaluate the impact for HTA guidelines. This project aims to provide stepwise practical guidance and recommendations for LMICs developing or updating national HTA methods and/or process guidelines.
