NICE International

What is NICE International?

NICE International is an advisory service we offer to international organisations, ministries and government agencies. We share best practice from NICE to help these organisations use evidence-based decision making to improve their own health and social care systems.

What we do

We have extensive experience and expertise in developing guidelines and assessing health technologies.

By sharing our knowledge, we can help international organisations develop systems to:

  • assess their healthcare programmes
  • introduce health technology assessment to allocate resources
  • improve quality of care
  • reduce variation of access.

We were very impressed with the service and the team. The speaking engagement was well prepared, inclusive, relaxed yet professional. Each speaker was interesting and spoke on topics relevant to our situation. As a result, we have identified changes we need to make to achieve our goals and can now see ways to make this happen.
