We obtained the EQ-5D-5L value set that will be implemented in Uruguay, which is the first country in Latin America to undertake such a study. The use of these values will help researchers, in Uruguay and eventually in other similar socio-economic countries, in conducting cost-utility studies based on the specific preferences of the general population to inform decision makers’ resource allocation decisions.
