The heads of Brazilian healthcare regulatory agency Anvisa are close to receiving a draft framework for the first national assessment of the economic impact of its activities. The group set up to draft the project is expected to report to Anvisa's directorate by the end of this month, according to a statement issued by Anvisa following a conference involving consultants on the project, held on August 11, in Brasilia. This is the first stage in a wider programme to assess the impact of regulation across all industrial sectors, which Anvisa was chosen to pilot (see Clinica No 1318, p 2).
