Health-Care Systems and Ethics: What Can We Learn?
Loewy, Erich H.
Health Care Analysis: An International Journal of Health Care Philosophy and Policy 1999; 7(4): 309-320
Health care systems in different countries and cultures differ and tend to reflect the particular values and, therefore, the particular social structure of a given society. Each of these has ethical problems unique to itself. Some of these problems are briefly discussed. So as to have an individual ethical problem in the context of medical care, access to medical care needs to be assured. It is argued that individual problems are the primary issue in societies in which there is fair access whereas they are of lesser importance in societies which have thus far failed to provide fair access.
