Who Owns Your Health? by Thomas Alured Faunce
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Across the globe, large corporations are dominating the supply and delivery of health care products and services and altering the behavior of health professionals. In Who Owns Your Health? Thomas Faunce applies moral, bioethical, and human rights perspectives to examine how the privatization of health care affects the public good. Drawing on the author's rich knowledge of relevant law, philosophy, and literature, his personal experience on the front lines of clinical medicine, and interviews with players who are intimately familiar with the pharmaceutical industry, this elegantly written analysis explores the urgent issues surrounding growing corporate influence on health policy and medical professionalism. In addressing the inherent tensions involved in the business of health care, Faunce promotes a framework by which the benefits of corporate competition might be better harnessed to promote patient well-being while acknowledging the need to ensure that global health remains a sustainable enterprise.
