Abstract

The desirability of a condition to people who are not in it themselves is only moderately correlated to the experienced well being of people with thecondition and hardly correlated at all to the worth of those people. A single score for a health state, of the kind used in QALY calculations, cannotexpress all these three types of value. The history and current practice of health economics is highly problematic in this respect. Copyright (C) 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
