“What should concern us is not only the disease itself but the people who are ill. Health is negatively related to poverty and ecological degradation. Social, economic, and political conditions make people vulnerable….an ethical framework is needed that values common interests more than private or national ones.”

Henk ten Have 

Henk ten Have, Director and Professor at Duquesne University’s McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts’ Center for Healthcare Ethics, has published a new book: Global Bioethics: An Introduction.
