Reconstructionist Confucianism and Health Care: An Asian Moral Account of Health Care Resource Allocation
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 2002 December; 27(6): 675- 682
In this article, I offer an abridged reconstruction of the foundational elements of Confucian moral commitments, which, I will argue, still provide the background moral substance for moral reflection in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Korea. The essay presents implications of Confucianism for establishing an appropriate health care system and critically assesses the features of current health polices in mainland China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. The goal is to offer a family-oriented, non- individualist account of resource allocation that takes family authority and responsibility seriously.
