Editorial Reviews


Norman Daniels has long been our preeminent authority on justice and health care. This book not only moves his thought along, but enriches it in a variety of illuminating ways. One could hardly ask for a better examination of the topic. It is revealing and compelling.
-Daniel Callahan, Director, The Hastings Center

"...[a] comprehensive study of the role that health should play in social policy, broadly defined to include even the economic and political structures of society...[Just Health] is a major contribution to the field and is likely to prove influential in the near term and beyond."
-Samuel Y. Sessions, UCLA, New England Journal of Medicine

"Just Health provides a remarkably broad and deeply engaging treatise of justice and health, which will influence both policy-makers and bioethicists for years to come. The rich empirical and conceptual analysis, along with first-hand policy insights from both national and international contexts covering more than 20 years, is truly impressive."
-Annette Rid, Bulletin of the World Health Organization

"...clear and thoughtful analysis...The central truth of [Daniel's] insights-a truth worth considering by the presidential candidates- is that health reform should have the goal of using resources wisely to improve public health."
-Richard Mathis, Health Affairs

"Daniels does us a great service by his introduction of an ethical dimension to his discussion of population health and the allocation of resources. His call for action on the social determinants of health to reduce avoidable inequalities in health is very welcome...He sets the terms for the debate."
-Michael Marmot, Lancet

Book Description

In this new book by the award-winning author of Just Healthcare, Norman Daniels develops a comprehensive theory of justice for health that answers three key questions: What is the special moral importance of health? When are health inequalities unjust? How can we meet health needs fairly when we cannot meet them all? Just Health: Meeting Health Needs Fairly explores the many ways that social justice is good for the health of populations in developed and developing countries.
