Invitation to conference December 19th/20th, 2014: "The ethics of health incentive programs"

The conference discusses the ethics of health incentive programs: How should we balance autonomy, solidarity and justice in health incentive policies? How should we define and address vulnerability, stigmatization and personal responsibility in health incentive programs? Which responsibility do health incentive pilot projects carry for possible value changes in health care systems? How can different theories of justice help us think about health incentive programs? Which questions arise from a global ethics perspective on health incentive programs?
