This is timely: Ethics Etc. brings us this call for papers (visit the linked post for more detail):
The Centre for Humanistic Studies of the University of Minho (CEHUM) is sponsoring an international conference on distributive justice in health which will take place in Braga the 6th and 7th of October 2011.
The aim of this conference is to define the state of the art in the discussion of justice in the distribution of health resources. For example, what is the right “currency” of justice in health : health care, all determinants and resources for health, Quality-Adjusted Life Years, health-related quality of life, something else ? And what is the right “pattern” : equality, sufficiency, priority to the worse-off, what the demos deliberately elects?
