Social Injustice and Public Health

H. Jack Geiger

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses how social injustice affects medical care. It addresses the health care crisis and social justice, in terms of access, cost, and quality. The chapter concludes that universal health access through public-sector social insurance must become part of the American social contract, restoring the primacy of the interest of patients and providers in a just and equitable system.

Keywords:   health care crisis, access, cost, quality, reform
