PRICELESS SA is the South African partner in a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations awarded to the international Decision Support Initiative (iDSI, www.idsihealth.org) in January 2016.  Prof Karen Hofman, Director of PRICELESS SA www.pricelesssa.ac.za, said: “The iDSI grant will enable us to continue supporting the Ministry of Health, Treasury and other health policy makers in South Africa on setting evidence-based priorities as the country moves towards National Health Insurance.
