The first health technology assessment (HTA) in Greece was held at the Health Ministry on Tuesday, with the participation of representatives from the EU’s Directorate-General for Structural Reform Support (DG Reform) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

HTA is “a multidisciplinary process that aims to determine the value of a health technology and to inform guidance on how these technologies can be used in health systems around the world, according to WHO.

The first meeting, titled “Enforcing the national framwork for the implementation of the European Union Regulation on the assessment of health technologies 2021/2282” was organized by the Greek Health Ministry’s General Secretariat for Strategic Planning, the ministry said in a statement. The EU Regulation will go into effect on January 1, 2025.

HTA is funded by the EU’s Directorate-General for Structural Reform Support (DG Reform), following a proposal by the Greek General Secretariat in October 2023. Greece is one of six countries being funded for such a program.

“This reform is a critical step toward improving the quality of health services in Greece,” Health Minister Adonis Georgiadis said at the meeting. “The new European Regulation sets the foundation for a more effective, transparent, and fair assessment process of new health technologies. The European Union’s support through DG Reform is decisive in this effort.”
