brisa-bir-opas-2017Washington, DC, November 22, 2017 (PAHO/WHO)- RedETSA and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) are launching the Regional Base of Health Technology Assessment Reports of the Americas - BRISA. This tool will allow the search of Health Technologies Assessment (HTA) bibliography produced by 33 member organizations of the Network. Initially, the base will include around 600 reports in Spanish, Portuguese, French, and English.
This initiative, pioneer in Americas, was made in partnership with the Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information (BIREME), through  the Virtual Health Library (VHL). The VHL will host the database, which enables crossing- searching the researched subject with other available databases, such as LILACS and Medline.

With the launching of BRISA, PAHO and RedETSA aim to promote the use of HTA to improve the decision making process for the incorporation of technologies in the health systems.
