ABSTRACT

The development of policies in health and healthcare should incorporate ethical premises as well as thoughtful consideration of the values pertinent to the particular society and the goals to be achieved by specific policies. Social inequalities, changing values, and emergent challenges to traditional beliefs, add complexities that require a thorough analysis to compile policies that are fair and equitable. This article provides some recommendations for clinicians, health administrators, policy makers and technocrats who often grapple with complex health issues.
