Distributional Value Judgments

Definition

Health Economics

  • Distributional value judgments are judgments about the desirability or otherwise of various distributions of entities to which moral significance is attached, like health, or health care, or access to health care. They may relate to, or derive from, more fundamental value judgments, for example about the relevance of a person's desert or need.
