summary
U.S. health care has often been conceived as a social good, and more specifically as a national good. Communities of Health Care Justice presents an alternate model, making a powerful ethical argument for why smaller communities—bound together by culture, religion, gender, race, and place—should be regarded as critical moral actors that play key roles in defining and upholding just health policy. Furthermore, it outlines the systemic, conceptual, and structural changes required to move toward this health care justice.
