The origins of bioethics as a discipline arouse from the need to provide an answer to new ethical questions generated as a result of technological advances in the health field and the new arenas in which biomedical research began to develop. Discussions were first focused on the relevance of the applicability of new technologies and the need to redefine a number of concepts related to the beginning and end of life. Then, over the years, this discipline was shaped and reconfigured incorporating issues related to the process of decision making in daily medical care, patient rights, protection of their freedoms and obligations of medical professionals, among others. The purpose of this essay is to reflect upon the ethical foundations of health care, trying to provide an answer to the question "why provide care" in light of the thought of Emmanuel Lévinas.
