Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is defined as a multidisciplinary process to evaluate the social, economic, organizational and ethical issues of an intervention or health technology. In anticipation of COVID-19 vaccine, a panel composed of the relevant stakeholders will have an open dialogue about the role of HTA in informing public health policy-making, with particular focus on vaccination, and enforcing such policies at an individual country and global levels. Potential learnings from previous pandemics, such as H1N1, will be reviewed. Ethical and economic challenges will be debated to offer a consensus position that takes into account societal benefits, economic, logistical and legal considerations.

Learning Objectives

Debate the ethical, logistical, and legal implications if a mandated vaccine program were to be instituted and what would inform such a decision; Discuss the role and opportunity of HTA to inform and recommend a decision.
