Abstract

The integration of economics and moral philosophy, which provides a new approach to evaluation and analysis of economic activities, is increasing within the literature. It is argued in this thesis that valuation and analysis in health economics and health programs (normative health economics) should be based on these recent advances. However, an appropriate integration of moral philosophy in the area of health economics has not yet been done. The objectives of this thesis are to modify the existing economic theory of health analysis by integrating the issues and principles of moral philosophy and develop some operational mathematical models to show how the proposed framework for integration of moral philosophy in the area of health economics can be applied to health economics and policy evaluation.
