Equity-Oriented Toolkit


Welcome to the Equity-Oriented Toolkit for Health Technology Assessment!
A needs-based health technology assessment model is used to provide methods to match the identified health needs of a population, to the most appropriate interventions. The existing tool kit focused on averages, but this ignored distributional issues and equity gradients.

We are now expanding this toolkit. It is based on clinical and population health status and takes into account issues of gender equity, social justice and community participation.

The integration of equity into each step of this needs-based toolkit represents a substantial advance in HTA methodology, by providing an evidence-based framework for assessing the impact of health policies and interventions on the rich-poor gap.
