Dr Alan Williams died on June 2, 2005.

Alan was the most powerful of the pioneers of health economics. It was his
inspiration that led to the creation of the York Health Economics MSc and
his vision ensured that the course exposed his students to complementary
disciplines like epidemiology and medical sociology.

There are countless established health economists- among them a number of
Catalan and Spanish economists - who received their specialist training
trough this programme much of it under Alans tutelage.

A visionary economist, he transformed the way that health care decisions
are taken. Dr. Williamss papers on economics of coronary artery bypass
grafting, recognized as most influential in 1997, had been published in
1985 by the British Medical Journal and drew the attention of clinicians
to his work.

Williams views centred on the way that health care impacted on both the
quantity and/or quality of life, and he advocated quality adjusted life
years - Qaly as a measure of health benefit. This had far reaching
consequences, arguably up to and including the creation of the National
Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) in 1999.

The Dialogue aim is to provide a first reaction and reflection from the
Spanish community of health economists, allied health and social policy
professionals and users of Health Economics on Dr. Williamss universal
vision and his influence in Spain.
