A German language HTA-newsletter was first issued in October 2001: it was published monthly and only electronically. The publisher was the HTA unit of the ITA in Austria.
The german HTA-newsletter aimed to bring the many new HTA publications, the knowledge on ongoing projects and on emerging technologies to a broader public. The newsletter intends to give a synthesis of primarily English and Spanish publications for health administrators and politicians.
Topics to be covered in the newsletter will be selected by their relevance for the german-speaking insurance based countries. The newsletter consisted of an editorial on the evaluation of programmes or policies, short articles on already published assessments, preferably those that have been carried out in more than one HTA agency, information on ongoing projects and mini-assessments of emerging technologies, information on conferences etc.
