A propos Francoise Cluzeau

I lead the international Decision Support Initiative (iDSI) Programme in India , helping the Government establish HTA & priority Setting and implement its huge health Insurance scheme. I am passionate about improving the quality of care through Standard Treatment Guidelines (STGs). I designed the guidelines methodology at NICE after leading the international AGREE Research collaboration of 19 countries that developed the AGREE Instrument for STGs. This has reaffirmed my belief that change is most effective through partnerships and collective thinking. I have over 15 years’ experience in global health, including in Sub Saharan Africa (Mali and Uganda) and other LMICs (Thailand, Ghana,Turkey, Georgia, Vietnam and Tunisia).
