Preventing vs Curative Medicine: Perspectives of the Jewish Legal Tradition
Golding, Martin P.
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1983 Aug; 8(3): 269-286.
Golding, a professor of philosophy and law, explores the policy implications of Jewish religious law (Halakhah) for decisions on allocating health care funds between preventive and curative medicine. He concludes that, while the duty to save lives is a stringent one, the Halakhic tradition can accommodate the choice of a preventive policy. (KIE abstract)
