When I tell people that I am a health economist, it often evokes a strong reaction. Some people find the idea that economics and health can go together is strange, while others baulk at the challenges that the economics of health presents. It's true that normative value judgements are crucial in health, but it's also true that there is a role for economics, that economics concepts such as opportunity cost are vitally important, and that there are a number of empirical questions that need to be answered in order to inform evidence-based decision-making and policy-setting.
