Policy Brief | 19 June, 2018 | Download PDF
Health Action International (HAI) supports a framework of sustainable cooperation on health technology assessments (HTA) at the European Union (EU) level, driven by high standards
of quality, transparency and independence. Commitment by all concerned parties to these principles is crucial.
Collaborative efforts have the potential to strengthen health systems across the EU. However, while harmonisation can be a means, it cannot be a goal in itself and flexibility should be shown on the grounds of national needs.
