The Dental and Pharmaceutical Benefits Agency

The Dental and Pharmaceutical Benefits Agency, TLV, is a central government agency whose remit is to determine whether a pharmaceutical product, medical device or dental care procedure shall be subsidized by the state. We also determine retail margins for all pharmacies in Sweden, regulate the substitution of medicines at the pharmacies and supervise certain areas of the pharmaceutical market.

Role in the project

TLV will provide input to the development of a new framework for DHT assessment from the perspective of an HTA agency. In addition, TLV will help to test and validate the developed framework by performing and reviewing health technology assessments during the planned case studies. Finally, TLV will engage in sustainability roundtables that involve other European HTA bodies and competent authorities to receive valuable input on the new framework.
