Blog post in Journal of Medical Ethics: Saving the baby or the family?

The blog post by Kristine Husøy Onarheim (who recently completed her PhD in the GHP research group), Ole Frithjof Norheim (leader, GHP) and Ingrid Miljeteig (Associate Professor, GHP) is focusing on the tragic dilemmas families face when they cannot afford necessary medical care due to high out-of-pocket payments. Questions are raised to whether it is acceptable for the family, the society and for health professionals to limit treatment for the baby in order to protect the family against such costs.
