The Basis of the Global Health Duty

Chapter 4 Global Justice and Health
Global Justice and Bioethics

Jonathan Wolff

Oxford University Press

This chapter raises the question of the basis of global health duty to wealthy and developed nations—that they should make a concerted effort to provide medical care for developing nations. There are two approaches that can be used to address the global health duty: language and human rights. Language can determine how a problem is framed and offer a variety of solutions to that effect. The human rights angle is based on judiciary concerns, although there has yet to be a specific mandate for that right.
