Summary
Explores the moral dilemmas posed by disparities in health across nationsMillions around the world die from preventable diseases. Millions more suffer from poor health as a result of extreme poverty. Contributors to this volume consider whether health inequalities are a result of global distributive inequalities and are therefore of concern to those promoting global redistributive justice. In other words, who bears responsibility for heath inequalities? Who should take responsibility for ameliorating them?Theoretical questions of definition, responsibility and moral relevance are explored alongside case studies on key issues such as the migration of health care practitioners from developing to developed nations, the impact of climate change on health outcomes, the social determinants of health outcomes, the effects of pharmaceutical legislation - and international bad practices more generally - on securing access to life-saving drugs in the developing world, and the differential effect of these practices on men and women, especially with respect to HIV/AIDS. Key Features:*Gives readers a full sense of the ways in which global policy making is affecting health outcomes in poor countries*Highlights the moral dilemmas of global policies with specific respect to health*Outlines the scope of responsibilities developed nations may have to remedy poor health in developing nationsKeywords: Health, Inequality, Global Distributive Justice, Health PolicyExplores the moral dilemmas posed by disparities in health across nationsMillions around the world die from preventable diseases.
