Building capacity for priority-setting

Colleagues and I have just published a new article in the journal, Global Health Action.

It is titled Strengthening expertise for health technology assessment and priority-setting in Africa.

As the article explains, “The focus on priority-setting is in response to the urgent need to ensure scarce resources are used effectively in support of Universal Health Coverage, and the scant literature discussing how technical economic evaluations should be integrated into highly political and complex priority-setting processes. Researchers’ roles in developing capacity in these areas are highlighted because few African governments have technology assessment units that can take responsibility for driving formal priority-setting processes.”
