leading global discussions on priority setting and health

Since 1996, the International Society for Priorities in Health (ISPH) has provided a forum for policy makers, researchers, practitioners and others involved in priority setting to exchange ideas and practical experiences on priority setting methods and approaches.

Our goals are (1) to promote the application and dissemination of good practices in priority setting, (2) to increase understanding among politicians, policy makers, health professionals, managers, patients, the media and the general public of priority setting, and (3) to encourage research and disseminate research findings and other information  about priority setting and health.
