    I argue for a conception of health as a person's ability to achieve or exercise a cluster of basic human activities. These basic activities are in turn specified through free-standing ethical reasoning about what constitutes a minimal conception of a human life with equal human dignity in the modern world. I arrive at this conception of health by closely following and modifying Lennart Nordenfelt's theory of health which presents health as the ability to achieve vital goals. Despite its strengths I (...)

  5. Sridhar Venkatapuram & Michael Marmot (2009). Epidemiology and Social Justice in Light of Social Determinants of Health Research. Bioethics 23 (2):79-89.

For the reasoning used in epidemiology to (...)
