The training will be held in proximity to the 2nd China National Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Conference in Beijing on 22-24 October 2019, which will attract more than 1000 policymakers, academicians, and industry to discuss the latest HTA developments in China. With HTA becoming codified into China’s national health legislation in 2017 and with the official establishment of the National HTA Center at the China National Health Development Research Center, this ISPOR training will be timely and effective.

The ISPOR HTA Training Program will be open to global registrants and there will be Chinese-English interpretation for the duration of the program. We are developing our registration system for this event and interested participants should complete the “Register Your Interest” form so we can contact you as soon as the registration system is open.
