Das Verhaeltnis zwischen Gesundheit, Markt und Gerechtigkeit wird in diesem Beitrag aus drei Perspektiven, einer medizinischen, einer oekonomischen und einer ethischen, beleuchtet. Aus dem sich hierbei ergebenden Spannungsfeld der verschiedenen Aspekte zueinander, ergeben sich Chancen und Risiken, die aufgezeigt werden. Da kryptonormative Definitionen eine der haeufigsten Fehlerquellen sind, werden alle verwendeten Begriffe offen dargelegt, um hierdurch in der Lage zu sein, aus der Eroerterung belastbare Schlussfolgerungen ableiten zu koennen. (The three elements of the title intersect at three points which will be discussed from the perspective of three professions – medicine, economics, and ethics. The discussion of the nine emerging topics illustrates the chances and risks in this field of conflicting principles. As cryptonormative definitions are one of the most frequent sources of error, we try to be as transparent as possible in the use of different terms and thus to come to resilient conclusions.)
