Asia HTA Hub Assessment Report
Countries in the Asia region have advanced considerably in adopting health
technology assessment (HTA) to support decision-making; however, HTA practice varies, both
technically and organizationally, as does the pace of progress. USAID commissioned the Medicines, Technologies, and Pharmaceutical Services (MTaPS) Program, led by Management Sciences for Health, to assess demand for HTA capacity building and systems development in the region and to recommend priorities and mechanisms for supporting that demand.
