Summary
The paper aims to sketch both the common and the divergent features of health economics and evidence-based medicine. This goal was attained by examining both disciplines regarding their definition approaches and subject areas (research interests). The discussion centres around the opinion that the development of evidence-based medicine contributes to a growth of interest in research topics concerned with economic analyses, including the techniques endorsed in evaluation studies. The paper supports the argument that health economics and evidence-based medicine develop extraordinarily quickly, become more and more noticed and increasingly widely applied in clinical practice.

K e y w o r d s: evidence-based medicine – health economics – public health.
