Public Health

OVERVIEW

The HTAi Public Health (PH-IG) was established in 2019. The IG Initiatives for Public Health Outcomes Research and Measurement (INPHORM) and the IG Assessment of Vaccines Programs (AVP) merged to form the Public Health IG. Public Health is a broad field which is rapidly expanding and attracting a high level of interest among policy makers and health authorities. HTAi believes that the merger is a great opportunity to strengthen the HTAi capacity to explore new activities and areas related to assessment of Public Health interventions and allow greater Society engagement in the Public Health arena.
