Ethical Issues in Healthcare Financing

Issue: 
Pages: 
498–501
Synopsis: 
Allocating scarce resources to competing sectors has always been a major challenge for policy-makers, planners and administrators. As the cost of healthcare continues to escalate and the burden of diseases make faster demands on the budget, there has been greater recourse to public debate on the issue. A major underpinning of this debate focusses on the ethical issues inherent in the decision-making process as they affect life, living and death – all in the context of “quality of life”.
