Health is now widely recognized as a universal human right, enshrined in the WHO Constitution; both national and international policies highlight the necessity of social and cultural factors to promote health and wellbeing.

At the same time, tightened regimes of fiscal rectitude necessitate difficult decisions about the distribution of scarce resources for health care, and discourse has often shifted away from collective health promotion to focus on individual rights and responsibilities. For instance, the Wales Department of Health’s recent strategy document Together for Health (2011) has highlighted issues of inequality, rising patient expectations, and the need to increase health and wellbeing in the population in the face of limited staffing and funding resources. Thus, there exists a real need for greater critical understanding of the social and cultural determinants of health, ethical health care and health policy decision-making, and the complex interactions between individuals and the societies that they live in.

The MA in Health, Ethics and Society will develop these understandings, as well as provide skills for decision-making and engagement that will be of use to both professionals and those approaching the course out of personal interest. The course links together three themes (ethics, health and well being, and wider society) in an innovative programme of study that is highly resonant with contemporary issues and concerns.
