Our aim is to help countries improve their nation's health and wellbeing. We do this by sharing our expertise in guideline development and health technology assessment.
We collaborate the world over to help health organisations, ministries and government agencies:
- make better and more cost-effective health and care decisions
- allocate finite resources
- improve care quality
- reduce variation in access to care.
NICE International is a not-for-profit advisory service. We charge a fee for our services to cover our costs, but we can sometimes get funding to help with this.

Where we work
We work with health organisations in the UK and around the world. We've delivered over 140 engagements in 45 countries since 2018.
Many of our engagements come from established links with other organisations. These include the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, the Department for International Trade, and British embassies abroad. Their involvement helps us develop relationships with other countries and they can sometimes act as a funding source.
Examples of our work
