Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of our editorial board, I am pleased to announce the launch of the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) in action, the first journal dedicated to health technology assessment in developing countries. IR's National Institute for Health Research will publish the first issue of HTA in action in collaboration with the ministry of health and medical education and Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS). We hope the journal will extend its collaboration with research centers from Iran and abroad as a step towards institutionalizing and sustaining evidence-based decision-making in health system.
Journal of HTA in action is a peer-reviewed journal that aims to publish topics related to health technology assessment; it is note worthy that HTA in action offers a fast route for publishing high-quality peer-reviewed research. The journal covers studies evaluating medical equipment, medicines, vaccines, procedures and systems developed to solve a health problem in the form of original studies, review articles, case reports, brief communications, and letters. HTA plays an important role in the process of macro and micro policy and decision making, therefore it is expected to witness an improvement in the pace, efficiency and validity of policy making via publishing HTA studies.

Kind Regards,
