NICE International contributes to better health around the world through the more effective and equitable use of resources.
It does this by providing advice on the use of evidence and social values in making clinical and policy decisions.
NICE International applies rigorous analytic methodology to:
- Put patients and the public first
- Respond to the needs and priorities of decision makers at all levels
- Emphasise an understanding of the social and cultural context
- Encourage transparent and inclusive decision making processes
NICE International also aims to undertake activities that have benefits outside of individual countries. These might include generation of knowledge products (such as case studies), preparation of tools for data collection and analysis, and facilitation of knowledge transfer among decision-makers across countries (such as through international meetings).

NICE International (NI) has been actively involved in the Chinese Rural Health Reforms since 2009. Its main counterpart in China is the China National Health Development and Research Centre (CNHDRC), a policy think-tank part of the Ministry of Health, which has over the years been leading on policy-orientated research projects of health strategy and health system reform; academic-based research of National Health Account and payment as well as health financial protection; and application-centred project of technology assessment and policy evaluation across China. This collaboration has so far been sponsored by DFID China.
In this latest part of the project, NI engaged in a series of activities, with the aim of informing CNHDRC and MoH's evaluation of the Clinical Pathways (CP) project, particularly with regards to its impact on costs and also to its potential for saving costs without compromising outcomes, in the longer run, should it be rolled out across rural China county hospitals.
