We are engaging in India, both at State and Central level, providing technical assistance to help the country realise its goal of Universal Health Coverage. Our work is focused on developing two key areas: a system to use Health Technology Assessment evidence to inform health resource allocation decisions and national clinical guidelines and quality standards to improve the quality of care delivery.
“The Standard Treatment Guidelines are a very welcome initiative, which will enhance access and improve quality of care for many conditions of public health importance in India… a transparent, rigorous and collective approach was evolved and adopted in the development of these guidelines.” Prof Anurag Bhargava, MD, MSc, Yenepoya Medical College, Karnataka, India
