Table 2 Solutions to contextual challenges affecting the use of economic evidence in CPGs

From: Health economic evidence in clinical guidelines in South Africa: a mixed-methods study

Solutions for production and use of HEE
• Need for political will and backing
• Training of guideline panels, policymakers and health economists
• Include health economists and others in expert review of analyses
• Health economists to suggest guideline recommendations based on the health economic evidence and work to increase the transparency and credibility of analyses
• Public-private partnerships to share evidence and for cross-sectoral decisions
• Clarify outcomes that matter to decision-makers for use in economic evaluations
• Need centralised management of health technology assessment (to commission and fund), a guiding body to coordinate functions
