OBJECTIVES: Willingness to pay (WTP) per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) has been suggested as the threshold of cost-effectiveness analysis to determine what is a QALY worth in monetary value. This study is to estimate the health related utility and WTP/QALY in Chinese patients with chronic prostatitis (CP). METHODS: A consecutive sample of CP.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
