One of the main problems facing the Italian National Health Service is the acquisition and allocation of resources. It is therefore essential to make rational choices regarding the new opportunities of vaccine prevention and the efficient allocation of financial resources. This implies the need to carry out global evaluations by means of the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) technique. Within the framework of a PRIN 2009 project “Vaccines: new technologies and new applications. Evaluation of the impact of the vaccines recently introduced into regional prevention plans and future prospects”, two HTA programs are foreseen with regard to the prevention of invasive diseases caused by Neisseria meningitidis and Streptococcus pneumoniae, in that new vaccines are available and others are in the authorization phase. The results yielded by these two HTA programs will be very useful to stake-holders and decision-makers, and will enable the most effective vaccine strategies to be drawn up.
