Asia Policy Forum

The HTAi Asia Policy Forum is moving into its sixth year.

The format of the Asia Policy Forum echoes that of the HTAi Global Policy Forum and provides a unique opportunity as a leadership meeting for senior representatives from public and private sector organizations using HTA from the Asia Pacific region. This meeting provides a key networking opportunity for those involved in the different sectors and to meet members of the HTAi Board, and invited international experts, for strategic discussions about the present state of HTA, its development and implications for health care systems, industry, patients and other stakeholders with specific relevance to the region. The aim of the Forum is to provide an environment where senior representatives can engage in strategic discussions informed by the perspectives of their different organizations without the constraints associated with discussions of specific products or organizational policies.

Chair: Brendon Kearney (Australia)

Scientific Secretary: Linda Mundy (Australia)

Members: Yukti Bhargava (Singapore), Adrian Griffin (United Kingdom), Isao Kamae (Tokyo), Guy Maddern (Australia), Kwong Ng (Singapore), Parashar Patel (United States), Nguyen Phuong (Vietnam), Franz Pichler (Australia), Andrew Rintoul (WHO), Sudigdo Sastroasmoro (Indonesia), Sean Tunis (United States), Kun Zhao (China)

HTAi Secretariat: Rebecca Trowman (Australia), Katelyn Pretzlaff (Canada)

Members of the Asia Policy Forum drive the content, process and format of the HTAi Policy Forum. The Committee acts as a conduit making-decisions and, where necessary (e.g. where there are budgetary implications), the Chair on behalf of the Forum makes recommendations to the HTAi Executive Committee and HTAi Board for ratification.
