CADTH was established by Canada’s federal, provincial, and territorial governments to be a trusted source of independent information and advice for the country’s publicly funded health care systems.

Health administrators and policy experts rely on CADTH to help inform their decisions about the life cycle management of drugs, devices, and services used to prevent, diagnose, and treat medical conditions.

We are experts at finding, interpreting, and assembling the best available information, and we know that evidence is the foundation of good decision-making. Understanding the evidence fuels action and provides the guidance needed to make smart choices, especially in new and unfamiliar health care terrain.

When Canada’s health care decision-makers want to know what the evidence says, they ask CADTH.
