The Developing Countries Interest Group (DCIG) and the Patient and Citizen Involvement Interest Group (PCIG) of HTAi (Health Technology Assessment international; are currently collaborating in a project with the objective to (1) explore the current routes of patient involvement in Low-and Middle Income Countries (LMICs), (2) collaborate with LMIC stakeholders to define LMIC-specific needs for patient involvement, and (3) develop and adapt guidance and tools to support patient and citizen involvement in HTA in emerging economies.

If you are aware of such examples, please let us know by filling in our short survey:
