Abstract in another language

Being aware that health is one of the most essential goods and that resources in health care systems are limited, shows us the importance of allocation issues in health care. Prioritization in medicine can contribute to allocate scare resources fairly and transparently. Acting responsibly requires the comprehension of processes and consequences of priority setting. Since health care systems around the globe are faced with challenges along with setting priorities, this book project aims to stimulate an international dialogue on prioritization. Contributors present a broad range of professional perspectives and scientific disciplines, which enables readers to get a comprehensive and balanced insight into the complex issue of setting priorities in medicine. This Chapter introduces the international dialogue on prioritization and the structure of the present volume.
