The creation of the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) in 1999 put the English NHS in a leading role in setting healthcare priorities. Although Australia, New Zealand, and Canada have systems that judge the cost effectiveness of drugs, they do not assess other health technologies. Bodies similar to NICE are reportedly being established in other countries, notably Germany and France. By April 2005, NICE had published 86 guidances on the use of health technologies and 39 guidelines on the treatment of diseases. It has received several generally favourable reviews from independent agencies including the House of Commons Health Committee, the World Health Organization, and independent academics.
