On May 2-3, 2018, the IDB mobilized the most recognized experts in Value-Based Pricing (VBP) and worked jointly with the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of Colombia to identify the main topics for discussion by the experts.

The workshop was a closed work meeting with delegates from the Ministry of Health, the Institute for Health Technology Assessment (IETS) and the National Institute for Food and Drug Surveillance (INVIMA) to discuss specific methodological and institutional issues with the experts.

An open event was also held that addressed the progress of the public sector and on the international experience on the subject of VBP and, finally, a meeting was held between the main actors in the health sector and international experts. This workshop resulted in important recommendations for the national policy that was being reformed at the time.
