Towards a working definition of morality in public health.

Abstract

There are two key applications of public health values at policy level. One relates to provision of health care with respect to the ability of citizens to pay. The other relates to the uneven distribution of health capability (Marmot’s causes of the causes) across the social body. Recent financial events draw our attention to the disputed ground, including the issue of income inequality. Aim: To re-examine notions of equality, justice and fairness, and their impact on health.
