About SBU

SBU evaluates methods used by medical and social services

We are an independent national authority, tasked by the government with assessing health care interventions from a broad perspective, covering medical, economic, ethical and social aspects.

SBU assessments are based on ‘systematic literature reviews’ of published research. The review method developed by SBU is thorough and rigorous.

SBU was founded in 1987. We are one of the oldest HTA (Health Technology Assessment) organisations in the world.
