The liberal grounding of the right to health care: an egalitarian critique

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article analyzes, from a radical egalitarian standpoint, the limitations of the different attempts to ground an equal right to health on John Rawls' theory of justice. The author considers three different attempts to base the rights to health care on Rawls' two principles of justice, and argued that neither principle can constitute the foundation for an egalitarian right to health. The article also proposes a first approximation to a radical egalitarian understanding of the right to health.
