The HTA development in Russia focuses on defining the willingness-to-pay threshold, the implementation of price negotiations and managed entry agreements, developing HTA for medical devices and cell and gene therapy.

In Turkey, Health Transformation Programme transformed the country towards a new era of HTA. A substantial number of HTA reports were published and the impact of HTA reports was evaluated. The main objectives of HTA implementation in Egypt include credibility, transparency and accountability in decision-making process – to reduce and/or control healthcare costs and achieve better quality of health services. As presented during the meeting, in December 2019 an independent HTA agency was to be formed in Ukraine and a roadmap was created to support the transformation of Ukraine healthcare.
