Authors' recommendations: Systematic and transparent criteria will improve the disinvestment process and will help to identify opportunities. Different approaches have been developed depending on the health care context as complete disinvestment with withdrawal of health resources and efficient reallocation to areas of better value, and partial disinvestment with changes in clinical practices, restriction of indications and limiting the duration/frequency of treatment.
