Gezondheidszorg, verantwoordelijkheid en leefstijl: waarheen met de individuele autonomie?

Author

Abstract
In many countries a healthy lifestyle is expected to become a criterion in obtaining healthcare services. If we understand lifestyle as a merely individual matter, what would be the consequences for health care if individual responsibility were a key principle in allocating health care services? Our attempt is to ‘enrich’ the debate on healthcare related to justice or equality, with Amartya Sen’s concept of capability. We will illustrate the ethical and philosophical relevance of this concept by means of the obesity case. We thereby plead for a broad framework from which to handle the question of lifestyle in general and that of obesity in particular.
