Ethics in (global) Public Health and Health Care System

As one of the few medical ethics institutes in Germany, we have been focusing for years on public health ethics, health care ethics and health sciences. We conduct research on topics such as prevention, health promotion, population-related effects of health measures, health equity and global health. In this field of research, not only knowledge of health-related and medical ethical literature is relevant, but also, for example, theories of political philosophy. We cooperate with the Munich Competence Center for Ethics and the Institute for Medical Information Processing, Biometry and Epidemiology (IBE) and the Chair of Public Health and Health Services Research at the LMU.
