Abstract

In this paper I will attempt to outline what I believe to be the most persuasive and acceptable (although not necessarily as yet accepted) theoretical justifications for the widest possible access to medicines and for prioritising measures to increase this access. This paper sets out the compelling arguments for state responsibility for these matters independently of any private or commercial arrangements that may be in place.

Keywords: Fairness, Hobbes, Just Distribution, Justice, Safety of the people.
