HTAi-INAHTA Interest Group on Ethical Issues in HTA

This is a unique group which is comprised of members from one or both international organizations. It was originally established by the Board of the International Network of Agencies in Health Technology Assessment (INAHTA) in 2004 and then further expanded into an interest group of HTAi in 2005.

Aims & Objectives

The current objectives as established by the general membership are

  • to develop an organizational structure and processes to ensure that the main goals of its membership are achievable;
  • to coordinate and prepare educational resources on ethics in HTA; and,
  • to develop practical approaches for identifying and handling ethical issues in HTA.

Benefits of Membership

Several benefits previously identified by our community of practice include:

  • networking opportunity to make connections with others internationally in the field of ethics;
  • opportunities (participation at workshops, panel sessions, etc.) to share and exchange expertise on processes, methodologies and tools; and,
  • learning more about ethics in HTA.
