Just Health: Meeting Health Needs Fairly

Autor Norman Daniels
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 22 oct 2007
In this book by the award-winning author of Just Healthcare, Norman Daniels develops a comprehensive theory of justice for health that answers three key questions: what is the special moral importance of health? When are health inequalities unjust? How can we meet health needs fairly when we cannot meet them all? Daniels' theory has implications for national and global health policy: can we meet health needs fairly in ageing societies? Or protect health in the workplace while respecting individual liberty? Or meet professional obligations and obligations of justice without conflict? When is an effort to reduce health disparities, or to set priorities in realising a human right to health, fair? What do richer, healthier societies owe poorer, sicker societies? Just Health: Meeting Health Needs Fairly explores the many ways that social justice is good for the health of populations in developed and developing countries.

'Daniels does us a great service by his introduction of an ethical dimension to his discussion of population health and the allocation of resources. His call for action on the social determinants of health to reduce avoidable inequalities in health is very welcome.' The Lancet
'… Daniels' work is one of the most complete attempts to date to provide an integrated theory for promoting health and distributing it fairly … this book makes compelling reading for anyone concerned about the need to address the growing demands for global justice regarding health care.' Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy
