    5th A Socratic Interchange on the Goals of the Health Sector

    5th A Socratic Interchange on the Goals of the Health Sector

    Veterinarian public health is not primarily an end in itself but on the contrary serves some human purpose.  There is not a similar clarity of understanding of the ultimate values  and underlying our goals for human public health. While we understand the moral basis for the  provision of  available technology for prevention, cure and care  for individual  human beings we simply take for granted that we should intervene with whatever available technology is at hand to alter the pattern of morbidity and mortality that we are capable of affecting.
