This introductory chapter describes the motivation for the book. It notes that the book is motivated by the thought that an inquiry into the uses and non-uses of CEA will yield important lessons about the nature of the resistance, and about ways to advance the field. It also states that a secondary impetus is the idea that how a nation uses CEA offers a prism through which to understand the collective values underlying its health care system.

Keywords: cost-effectiveness analysis; CEA; economic evaluation; health care
