The EUnetHTA JA2 Stakeholder Forum is formed to ensure a transparent engagement with a broad range of stakeholders and is comprised of representatives from patient and healthcare consumer organisations, healthcare providers, payers (statutory health insurance) and the industry. The Stakeholder Forum's composition aims at ensuring broad and balanced representation of stakeholder interests.
The purpose of the EUnetHTA JA2 Stakeholder Forum is to provide stakeholders with the opportunity
to participate as stakeholder representatives in the EUnetHTA Joint Actions
to observe and comment on the EUnetHTA Joint Action work
to provide advice to overarching governance questions in the Joint Actions, and
to bring forward specific themes and concerns considered relevant by the stakeholders' constituencies and in line with the aims of the EUnetHTA Joint Actions
The specific composition of the Stakeholder Forum is suggested by the Executive Committee for discussion and approval by the Plenary Assembly. To maintain the effectiveness of the Stakeholder Forum, each stakeholder group should not be represented at the Forum’s meetings by more than 6 organisations.
