Better decisions. Better health.

The International Decision Support Initiative (iDSI) is a sustainable, adaptable, international mechanism to provide policymakers (at sub-national, national, regional and international levels) with coordinated support in priority-setting as a means to Universal Health Coverage (UHC). The initiative shares experiences, showcases lessons learned, and identifies practical ways to scale technical support for more systematic, fair and evidence informed priority-setting processes. Its interventions help to improve access to effective health interventions and the quality and efficiency of health care delivery, and to help elevate the value of priority setting as essential for attaining and sustaining UHC.
