AHTA hosts the Secretariat for the English Editorial Board of the HTA GlossaryLink to external website, an international collaboration to standardise nomenclature in HTA.

The HTA GlossaryLink to external website is an official collaboration between the International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment (INAHTA) and Health Technology Assessment international (HTAi). Partner organisations include AHTA, Institut national d’excellence en santé et en services sociaux (INESSS) – French Editorial Board, the Galician Agency for Health Technology Assessment (AVALIA-T) – Spanish Editorial Board, and the German Institute of Medical Documentation and Information (DIMDI) – German Editorial Board.

The purpose of the Glossary is to provide simple, ISO compliant, explanations of terms used in health technology assessment so that there is a common vocabulary for those working in the field.
