Project: An ethical analysis of age as a criterion for decision making in health care

project duration
01-OCT-06 – 30-SEP-08
abstract
The project will analyse the question whether and to what extent the use of age as a criterion in decision making in health care should be considered as a form of discrimination. This analysis takes place within the broader context of theories of distributive justice. Also other problems related to age, like life extension and anti-aging will be considered.
