News for 2009
The Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) is an independent agency funded by Canadian federal, provincial, and territorial governments to provide health care decision makers with credible, impartial advice and information about the effectiveness and efficiency of drugs and other health technologies. Unlike regulators who determine which technologies can be used in Canada, CADTH supports decision makers who are exploring what technologies should be used to achieve the best outcomes both on patient health and the health care system.
