Global Health Supply Chain Technical Assistance Project
In 2016, PRICELESS joined a consortium led by Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC), supported by USAID to deliver a project on the Global Health Supply Chain (GHSC). While the overall effort is focused on strengthening the pharmaceutical supply chain, PRICELESS is leading on the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) component.
HTA is becoming a part of health systems globally in order to ensure that services are affordable and produce the best health outcomes with available resources. It looks at the cost effectiveness of health care services and medicines, such as which medicines and interventions are the best value for money for the population to ensure equity, or which diagnostic test should be used, or which specialist services should be provided at a district or regional level.
