Global Health Justice and Governance Hardback
In a world beset by extreme and unconscionable health disparities humankind desperately needs a new vision to ensure central health capabilities for all.
Yawing gaps in health law, dangerous contagions that can circle our globalized planet in hours, and a bewildering confusion of health systems are all profound challenges requiring urgent address.
Global Health Justice and Governance lays out the critical problems facing the world today and offers a newtheory of justice and governance as a way to resolve these seemingly intractable issues. A fundamental responsibility of government is to ensure human flourishing.
The central role that health plays in this flourishing places a unique claim on our public institutions and resources, as central health capabilities are pressed to reduce premature death and prevent avoidable morbidities.
In a world of staggering inequalities, imperilling epidemics, and inadequacies of current models a new architecture of central health systems is desperately needed.
Global Health Justice andGovernance lays out a vision for achieving this important change.
