 Early awareness and alert (EAA) systems identify, filter and prioritise new and emerging health technologies, to assess or predict their impact on patients, society and/or health systems, and to inform decision makers and planners.

This joint workshop with the EuroScan International Network and the World Heath Organisation (WHO) will introduce participants to the EuroScan toolkit with a focus on countries where HTA is a developing concept.
