This short series of webinars examines the introduction of essential new health technologies and approaches in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each event explores how evidence is used to inform specific stages in a typical intervention life-cycle – from identification of priority interventions, to procurement and price negotiation, and monitoring of health service delivery.
The webinar series is led by the Health Intervention and Technology Assessment Program (HITAP), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Access and Delivery Partnership (ADP).
