Public Health Ethics 8 (1):18-26 (2015)

Abstract
The article concerns itself with normative aspects of public health in light of recent debates. It starts out by introducing a few terminological and conceptual distinctions that set the stage for the subsequent discussion. This is followed by critical remarks on two proposals for developing an adequate public health ethics and the way that the growing health inequalities observed in much of the OECD-world are dealt with in parts of the pertinent literature. The article concludes with a cautionary note on the ‘dangers’ of over-identification with a public health agenda and of over-moralization of empirical findings that give cause for concern
