PS: Health and Medicine

The highest quality analysis and commentaries from distinguished voices across the world.

“Medicine is being transformed by a scientific and technological revolution. But will new and better drugs and longer life spans come at too high a cost to our ethical and moral norms? The question is too important to be left to experts and accountants. Informed discussion requires that the public understand the social, economic, and political implications of today’s medical advances.  Survey after survey shows that readers look to their newspapers for news about improvements in medicine and their impact on health. Project Syndicate’s monthly series of commentaries on Health and Medicine brings cutting edge medical discoveries and thorny policy issues to newspaper readers everywhere. Committed to identifying and presenting ideas that demand wider attention, Project Syndicate is uniquely suited to “translate” the technology and ethics of state-of-the-art medicine into language that the broad public can understand.”
