Ethical issues and access to healthcare.

Author information

  • 1Center for Ethics, Emory University, USA.


Access to healthcare services is far from equitable and legitimately raises the question of justice. Healthcare insurance provides access for most Americans, but for the 15% without coverage, access to healthcare services is difficult at best. As limits are put upon the healthcare dollar at the same time that technology is advancing rapidly, the population is aging, and resources are shrinking, we must determine a just and fair process for allocating limited healthcare resources.
