This book examines the ethical issues associated with public and community health. The contributors analyze the major ethical issues in public health - prioritization, public participation, health promotion and screening - all of which reflect late-1990s practice in the UK. They examine what health services should be available, who should have access to which health services, what are the best strategies for preventing disease, how can professional and public views be reconciled and when can an individuals health needs override the choice of a community. The contributors apply up-to-date ethical theory to practical examples in public health practice to provide a comprehensive introduction to the key issues in public health ethics.
