dc.description.abstractAn "Exchange Theory of Justice" is advanced to argue for a universal right to basic health care in any society able to provide such services. The theory assumes that a just exchange is not possible if one party lacks goods necessary for survival while a second party holds an abundance of those goods. The responsibility to equitably distribute health care lies with the society as a whole. Health professionals are morally obligated only to the extent that they are responsible as members of society for endeavoring to achieve a just social policy. (KIE abstract)en
