Abstract

Carrick articulates and embraces the Hippocratic-inspired 'philanthropic imperative,' which states: "We have a duty to reduce sickness and suffering and promote or restore, as generously as possible, the health of our fellow human beings." Carrick argues that if this principle were adopted internationally, it would significantly encourage more effective public health interventions among the poorest of the poor world wide.
