  1. Luara Ferracioli & Pablo de Lora (forthcoming). Primum Nocere: Medical Brain Drain and the Duty to Stay. Journal of Medicine and Philosophy.
    In this essay, we focus on the moral justification and enforcement strategy of a highly controversial measure to redress medical brain drain: the duty to stay. We argue that the moral justification for this duty lies primarily in the fact that medical students impose high risks on their fellow citizens while receiving their medical training, which in turn, gives them a reciprocity-based reason to temporarily prioritize the medical needs of their fellow citizens. We also claim that responsibility for the enforcement (...)

    This essay focuses on the challenge European states have imposed on themselves, namely, to provide state-of-the-art health care equally to all and for less than market price. Continued endorsement of that challenge in these states hinges on their character as media democracies: the public is moved by a supposed morally warranted expectation that all should receive adequate health care at no significant personal cost. The structural and economic constraints that hamper such forms of healthcare delivery result in systems that are (...)

  4. Stéphane Bauzon (forthcoming). Classical Distributive Justice and the European Healthcare System: Rethinking the Foundations of European Health Care in an Age of Crises. Journal of Medicine and Philosophy:jhu078.
    The state subvention and distribution of health care not only jeopardize the financial sustainability of the state, but also restrict without a conclusive rational basis the freedom of patients to decide how much health care and of what quality is worth what price. The dominant biopolitics of European health care supports a healthcare monopoly in the hands of the state and the medical profession, which health care should be opened to the patient’s authority to deal directly for better basic health (...)

  5. Friedrich Breyer & Hartmut Kliemt (forthcoming). Priority of Liberty” and the Design of a Two-Tier Health Care System. Journal of Medicine and Philosophy:jhu076.
    Libertarian views on rights tend to rule out coercive redistribution for purposes of public health care guarantees, whereas liberal conceptions support coercive funding of potentially unlimited access to medical services in the name of medical needs. Taking the “priority of liberty” seriously as supreme political value, a plausible prudential argument can avoid these extremes by providing systematic reasons for both delivering and limiting publicly financed guarantees. Given impending demographic change and rapid technical progress in medicine, only a two-tier system with (...)

  7. John Meadowcroft (forthcoming). Just Healthcare? The Moral Failure of Single-Tier Basic Healthcare. Journal of Medicine and Philosophy:jhu077.
    This article sets out the moral failure of single-tier basic healthcare. Single-tier basic healthcare has been advocated on the grounds that the provision of healthcare should be divorced from ability to pay and unequal access to basic healthcare is morally intolerable. However, single-tier basic healthcare encounters a host of catastrophic moral failings. Given the fact of human pluralism it is impossible to objectively define “basic” healthcare. Attempts to provide single-tier healthcare therefore become political processes in which interest groups compete for (...)

  8. Alberto Mingardi (forthcoming). Healthcare and the Slippery Slope of State Growth: Lessons From the Past. Journal of Medicine and Philosophy:jhu074.
    All over Europe, the provision of healthcare services is widely considered a primary duty of the government. Universal access to medical care can be considered a basic ingredient of the so-called “European social model.” But if universal access to medical care is seldom questioned, European governments—faced with expanding costs caused by an increasing demand driven by an aging population and technology-driven improvements—are contemplating the possibility of “rationing”1 treatments, or the possibility of allowing a greater role for private suppliers. If a (...)

  10. Wim J. A. Van Den Heuvel (forthcoming). Value Reorientation and Intergenerational Conflicts in Ageing Societies. Journal of Medicine and Philosophy:jhu079.
    The Ageing of societies is a unique historical development of mankind. Today, such ageing is recognized as a threat for developed societies. There is fear of increasing inequality in health and in access to health care. Apart from the costs of ageing and care, such fear creates intergenerational conflicts. This paper explores what values are at stake when a society ages. At issue here is the social position of the old citizens and the way in which they are regarded by (...)
