EUnetHTA JA Stakeholder Involvement Policy
This document provides the core principles for stakeholders' involvement in EUnetHTA. It is accompanied by internal Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) stipulating procedures for all types of stakeholder involvement mentioned in this policy.
The EUnetHTA Joint Action recognises that different groups and organisations bring key information and experience on the producing of concrete Health Technology Assessments (HTAs). It further recognises the impact of HTA on the development, use and funding of various health interventions that could be subject to an HTA. Therefore, the EUnetHTA Joint Action Stakeholder Policy was developed to facilitate a transparent, responsible, accountable, participative and responsive stakeholder involvement process.
The stakeholder policy as referred to below applies to the EUnetHTA Joint Action 2010-2012. When implementing or acting on behalf of the EUnetHTA Joint Action, its members should follow principles as set out in this stakeholder policy. The policy does not apply to HTA agencies when conducting purely national activities outside of the context of the EUnetHTA Joint Action. The network will seek various types of input from stakeholders for the benefit of the decisions and governance in the EUnetHTA Joint Action.
