The HTAi Latin America Policy Forum is now in its second year. The format of the LATAM Policy Forum echoes that of the HTAi Global Policy Forum and provides a unique opportunity as a leadership meeting for senior people from public and private sector organizations using HTA from the Latin America region. This meeting provides a key networking opportunity for those involved in the different sectors and to meet members of the HTAi Board, and invited international experts, for strategic discussions about the present state of HTA, its development and implications for health care systems, industry, patients and other stakeholders with specific relevance to the region. The aim of the Forum is to provide an environment where senior people can engage in strategic discussions informed by the perspectives of their different organizations without the constraints associated with discussions of specific products or organizational policies.
Latin America Policy Forum
Chair: Laura Sampietro-Colom (Spain)

Members of the LATAM Forum drive the content, process and format of the LATAM Forum. The Committee acts as a conduit making-decisions and, where necessary (e.g. where there are budgetary implications), the Chair on behalf of the Forum makes recommendations to the Policy Forum Coordinating Committee, who in turn report to the HTAi Executive Committee and HTAi Board for ratification.
