WEEK 10 OPTIONAL Vx ACTIVITY: WHAT IS JUSTICE?

WEEK 10 OPTIONAL Vx ACTIVITY: WHAT IS JUSTICE?

In Week 10 we will explore ethical issues around inequalities in health and resource allocation. We will consider questions such as:
Who should we treat? What health conditions should be prioritised for funding? Which groups within society should be helped the most? How will I use my time and expertise in the fairest way?

Certainly important questions during our current pandemic.

The most fundamental question underlying matters of resource allocation in health care is, 'what is justice?' 

Lots of thinkers have come up with different answers to this question, so clearly there is no single 'right answer'. There is no great 'authority' to turn to either.

So, let's take a different tack. What do you - as individuals and collectively - think justice is?

As soon as you have finished you will be able to see what everyone else thinks - should be interesting reading!

If you had to choose just one simple definition of justice, which would it be?
Everyone being free to make as much wealth as they can
Everyone being protected by government
Government making the richest people pay to help the poorest
