Global Health and Development Participation 10th China Heath Technology Assessment Forum

In November 2016, Kalipso Chalkidou participated in the 10th China HTA Forum at Hangzhou in SE China, under the auspices of Fudan University and with support from the China Medical Board.

The Forum, attended by 300 delegates from academia, provincial and central administration and the international HTA community, was an opportunity to share experiences and commit to institutional partnerships including with Fudan University.

Fudan has a long tradition in HTA training and capacity building since the early 90s. The University  is increasingly investing in HTA, including a soon to be launched MOOC in HTA for Chinese students and is keen to build international partnerships in the field of Priority Setting in health. This is an opportunity for Imperial College’s Institute for Global Health Development to further strengthen its Chinese links with academics and policy makers in the country.
