"Advances in the Institutionalization of Health Technology Assessment in Argentina"

In Argentina, since the creation in 2009 of the Coordinating Unit for the Evaluation and Execution of Health Technologies (UCEETS), within the orbit of the then Ministry of Health, the debate on the evaluation of health technologies (ETS) has been in the agenda of the decision makers of the health system. At the same time, entities that carry out ETS activities have been created and developed, both in the public and private spheres.

In recent years in the Latin American region, clear progress has been observed in the institutionalization of the STD, especially since 2012 when the Member States of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) approved the resolution on "Evaluation and incorporation of health technologies in health systems in the Region ", which invited member countries to promote the creation of decision-making processes for the incorporation of health technologies based on ETS. In this context, in Argentina since 2015, the current national administration has constituted as a central objective of its health policy the creation of a National Health Technology Assessment Agency (AGNET). However, despite the time elapsed,

However, there have been advances that must be emphasized. On the one hand, since the beginning of 2018, a project to create an AGNET has been sent to the legislature as a decentralized and autarchic organization, with the aim of providing an explicit, objective and transparent framework for health technology coverage policies; which is currently being debated in the Senate of the Nation. On the other hand, and until the legislative debate on the creation of AGNET was finalized, a National Health Technology Assessment Commission (CONETEC) was created within the scope of the Ministry of Health. The CONETEC has the competences to conduct health technology assessments in order to issue recommendations on their appropriate use, opportunity and way of incorporation for their financing and / or coverage.
