The Andalusian Agency for Health Technology Assessment AETSA
(Progress and Health Foundation — FPS)

The articulation of biomedical research in the Andalusian Public Health System gives the Progress and Health Foundation an important role, support, and sharing of services to research entities and groups throughout the entire scientific process: from the development of the necessary resources (infrastructure, financing, development and mobility of talent...) to the implementation and effective performance of scientific production, to the transfer of research results to the industry and, after that, to society. Likewise, the Progress and Health Foundation assumes the direct management of strategic projects of the Health Department of the Regional Government of Andalusia in this field.

To do this, through a rigorous process of scientific research and analysis, AETSA produces structured information to facilitate the choice of the best possible alternatives among the existing ones.
