HTAi would like to extend sincere gratitude for the patience and understanding our stakeholders have exhibited while we adapt to the evolving global situation with COVID-19. As part of our commitment to keeping our community informed, we share the following update.

The decision of the Board of Directors to no longer hold the Annual Meeting 2020 in Beijing, China has been difficult to arrive at, but essential. HTAi, Fudan University, China National Health Development Research Centre (CNHDRC), and the 2020 International Scientific Program Committee remain committed to the goal of expanding our ability to mobilize and strengthen the global HTA community. In support of this goal, we continue our efforts to develop future international meeting opportunities in China.

In the meantime, HTAi is investigating opportunities to make digital content available to our valued members. These include previously accepted HTAi 2020 Annual Meeting program materials which are recognized as outstanding for their quality and thought leadership.

To those who are not ready to commit to HTAi membership, but are interested in receiving information on digital content, please email the Secretariat at info@htai.org, using the subject line Attn: Digital Content . Your name will be added to a mailing list with regular updates.

We will also take this moment to remind our valued members and stakeholders of our 2021 Annual Meeting, which will take place in Manchester, United Kingdom in June 2021. Abstract submission systems for the 2021 Annual Meeting are expected to open in August 2020.

Further information will be provided over the course of the upcoming months. For additional opportunities to stay involved with HTAi, visit htai.org.
