Inequalities in Health

Concepts, Measures, and Ethics

Edited by Nir Eyal, Samia A. Hurst, Ole F. Norheim, and Dan Wikler

Population-Level Bioethics

  • Inequalities in health have become a central concern of health policy both within and between nations. This book offers the first searching, critical examination of many of the key concepts and ethical assumptions found in this scientific and health policy literature. These authors offer some of the first extended efforts to answer these questions - and in some cases to identify them.
  • The contributors include global leaders in health economics, epidemiology, moral philosophy, and related academic fields such as Sir Tony Atkinson, Sir Michael Marmot, Angus Deaton, Frances Kamm, Erik Nord, Larry Temkin, Dan Hausman, and others.
  • They also include some of the most promising young contributors to population-level bioethics.
  • The range of disciplines represented here is unique in this field, as is the degree of integration across disciplinary boundaries.
