exam question: Can health be global?
Terms of the question:
“equality” → see definitions
“care” → see definitions
“Myth”: in this context can mean “.
The question that pinpoints the problem, that is, the fundamental problem implied by the question, is centered around the idea that there must be equality in access to care. This implied value could be questioned, even if the question had this need or benefit of equal access to care for granted. The exam question thus led more simply to the question: are we all equal when it comes to being treated? Can everyone afford to be healthy, can everyone get care in the same way as others?
The classical and effective outline for this kind of subject was to notice that indeed our society posed as an ideal for the possibility for everyone to have care, and that this care is qualitatively identical for all (I). Then to see that unfortunately this ideal is still far, in spite of certain attempts to reach it.
Many other outlines were possible, even more efficient or more subtle, do not hesitate to propose yours in comments!

> Answer key for the 2nd question: Can health be global?
This subject was undoubtedly the more difficult of the two. In particular because linking the issue of globalization to that of health, and applying health on an international scale, is a challenge that is rarely addressed or mentioned when talking about health. Health in our societies is indeed more naturally part of the state framework than at the interstate level.

To find the question that pinpoints the problem, we need to understand what is behind the question, “Can health be global?” We have already begun to discuss this in the introduction to this answer key. Health naturally develops within the framework of the state, the country. The idea of health on an international scale seems little considered. However, global problems (epidemics in particular) force us to question the global action of States in relation to health.
Can States collaborate whether through organizations (WTO) or through their own actions when it comes to health?
