The use of EQ-5D questionnaires (i.e. EQ-5D-3L, EQ-5D-5L, and EQ-5D-Y) in Asian region is increasing. There are 40, 36, and 14 official language versions of the EQ-5D-3L, EQ-5D-5L, and EQ-5D-Y self-complete version on paper respectively from countries in this region. Moreover, 7 countries published their EQ-5D-3 value set and 5 countries for the 5L version value set, while 6 others will follow. International publications that utilized the EQ-5D as their tool increase rapidly, from only 1 publication in 2001 to about 100 in 2015. The EQ-5D has been utilized in clinical, population and economic evaluation studies. It could be expected that that EQ-5D will be a standard instrument in many health systems in Asia.
