The universal health care was implemented in 1974 in Australia, providing health care and financial protection to all global citizens. Thus allowing every human a right to a standard living without separating citizens due to their disorder, illness or lifestyle. Human dignity can be explained as a form of inherent and self-worth, however this can also have the potential to be taken away from someone either by their actions or the society. I believe that the universal health care is extremely important in relation to human dignity, especially to those who are unfortunate to not have the money in order to receive the care or procedures in order to achieve their life to its fullest.

As seen in perspective one only focusing on 1A – 1B aspect, this having the capacity to jeopardise a 2A-2B perspective to ones self-dignity and to the social citizens surrounding those individuals

This particular perspective will be dragged out to the understanding of the concept between human dignity and health care justifying it through particular quadrants of one’s dignity.
In martin Buijsen article “Autonomy, Human dignity, and the right to Health care: A Dutch Perspective, (2010)”, he argues the idea that every human is entitled to healthcare from the basis that dignity is inherent. It is through Buijisen article and opinion that “autonomy human being to whom dignity is inherent and which merits unconditional respect’ he allows the readers to see the overlapping thinking that has been formed through this particular perspective, initiating the values that all humans should receive as we are all inherent and share the same values. Through his own opinion demonstrating a 1A perspective that we are all “inherent and...
