Healthcare is a topic that speaks broadly to the values and institutions that any society sets in place for the administration and care of its population. Issues raised in this area range across a wide spectrum of discussions that include reflection on the common good, definitions of health, the ends of medicine, the Judeo-Christian Hippocratic tradition, economics, and paradigms of healthcare allocation and management, along with systems of administration.
