Health systems have to cope with the growing gap between finite resources and unlimited demand for health services. Systematically analyzing health priorities and resource allocation avoids problems of efficiency, quality, opportunity, and equity.

In recent decades, nearly fifty countries have established health technology assessment (HTA) models and institutions to make informed decisions regarding prices, quality, and coverage of health services. But the level of development of these institutions and their scope varies depending on the context of each country.

In this webinar, the perspective of political economy will be adopted to describe the motivators and ten "drivers" that facilitate or limit the institutional development of HTAs in some countries of the Americas and Eastern Europe.
