A needs-based health technology assessment model is used to provide methods to match the identified health needs of a population, to the most appropriate interventions. The existing tool kit focused on averages, but this ignored distributional issues and equity gradients.

This toolkit is based on clinical and population health status and takes into account issues of gender equity, social justice and community participation.
