Yugoslavia: Equity and Imported Ethical Dilemmas
Himmelstein, David U.
Hastings Center Report. 1984 Dec; 14(6): 26-27.
Health care in Yugoslavia has been influenced by considerations of equity, a legacy from the country's partisan movement during World War II that united many different racial, ethnic, religious, and political factions. Equality still plays a major role in ethical debates resulting from Yugoslavian medicine's growing dependence on imported high-cost biomedical technologies coupled with economic constraints. There is little government involvement with medical ethics; instead, universities foster research and teaching, and the lay and professional press educate their readers with articles on bioethical issues. An institute for the study of medical ethics has been started in Zagreb, and has begun to participate in international conferences. (KIE abstract)
