Current theoretical approaches to bioethics and public health ethics propose varied justifications as the basis for health care and public health, yet none capture a fundamental reality: people seek good health and the ability to pursue it. Health Capability is a concept in public health ethics that considers various individual and societal factors that determine people’s abilities to achieve optimal health outcomes. This talk, hosted by the Center for Bioethics on March 4, introduces the Health Capability Profile and how it was used in identifying and addressing gaps in health.
