A new HTA guideline from a lower middle-income country, Indonesia, added to the GEAR database

With an aim to provide universal health coverage to its citizens, Indonesia launched its universal health coverage program the Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (JKN). One of the crucial links towards achieving this goal is wise use of resources.

Following this the Health Technology Assessment Committee (HTAC) was formed under the Ministry of Health, Indonesia. The HTAC in collaboration with the Health Technology Assessment Program (HITAP) and the international Decision Support Initiative (iDSI) produced the Indonesian Health Technology Assessment (InaHTA) Guideline document. This is a comprehensive guide to economic evaluations and is divided into three parts: The first part is a general description of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) with specific attention to clinical aspects. The second part are guidelines for economic evaluation. Last part, describes step-by-step guidelines to carry out HTA in Indonesia.

 This is the first version of the guideline endorsed by Ministry of Health that will be applied to all HTA studies conducted for policy use in Indonesia.
