One of the responsibilities of the National Committee for Health Technology Incorporation (Conitec), from the Brazilian Ministry of Health, is to promote actions favoring patient and public involvement (PPI) in the Health Technology Assessment (HTA). In this presentation I will share information about the current Patient engagement process at Conitec and survey findings on patient's perspectives on the PPI in Brazil, in order to improve and transform the process.
