Explores the moral dilemmas posed by disparities in health across nations Contributors to this volume considers whether health inequalities are a result of global distributive inequalities and are therefore of concern to those promoting global redistributive justice. Case studies include > The migration of health care practitioners from developing to developed nations > The impact of climate change > The social determinants of health outcomes > The effects of pharmaceutical legislation--and international bad practices more generally--on securing access to life-saving drugs in the developing world > The differential effect of these practices on men and women, especially with respect to HIV/AIDS These cases are explored alongside theoretical questions of definition, responsibility and moral relevance to discover the scope of responsibilities that developed nations have towards poor health in developing nations.
