Social and individual health aspects in transplantation medicine

  • E. Huber
Conference paper


Physicians serve the health of the individual and the entire population. Illness is an individual and a social problem and a health-care system must integrate individual well-being into the general good. The activity of physicians is integrated into the social context. The value of transplantation medicine within a modern health-care system, and particularly of heart transplantation, is also influenced by social conditions. We need to know how health-care systems will develop in the future if we wish to assess the future of transplantation medicine.
