The Quest for Justice in Global Health


  • Solomon Benatar


A number of high-profile ethical dilemmas are embedded in the emerging topic of global health. The three books under review here provide various lenses through which to view them. In Ethics in Global Health: Research, Policy, and Practice, Ruth Macklin offers finely honed contemporary arguments and applies them to the future. Global Justice and Bioethics, a collection of essays edited by Joseph Millum and Ezekiel Emanuel, focuses on theories of justice, and in Long-term Care, Globalization and Justice, Lisa Eckenwiler looks more broadly at the global implications of caring for the aged in wealthy societies.
