Introduction

Part of the Philosophy and Medicine book series (PHME, volume 33)

Abstract

Chronically diseased or disabled children often have significantly fewer opportunities in life than their healthy counterparts. Thus, decisions such as how much money to spend on children’s health care or whether to fund research projects on childhood diseases will have a direct effect on the lives of those children. Because prevention, treatment, and cure expand opportunities, we naturally want to provide them for our children, and perhaps we have some obligation to do so. The contributors to this section consider what it means to allocate an appropriate share of our resources, especially our health-care funds, to children. How do we decide when we have provided them proper access to the health care they need?
