We invite submissions to a special issue of Diametros – An Online Journal of Philosophy, dedicated to the topic: "Equality and Decency in Healthcare".
The issue will focus on two normative concepts related to healthcare: the idea of equal access to healthcare and the notion of decent minimum of healthcare.
Papers may deal with different ways of understanding these concepts and relations between them. They may also explore the relation of equality and decency to other values in healthcare, such as sufficiency and effectiveness. We encourage submissions from a range of disciplines related to health and medicine, including bioethics, medical law, health economics, health sociology etc.
Deadline for submissions: December 15, 2016.
