The modalities of the ancient discussions are, however, very different from their modern cousins, for two main reasons. First of all, the notion of public health care is a distinctively modern one: the idea (however attenuated it may be in the United States) that the overall health of a population is a public good to be safeguarded by public investment and the derivative idea that basic health provisions are a social right are both of recent provenance. Equally modern, and for related reasons, is the notion of the general social costs incurred by having sections of the population less healthy and fit than they might be, as well as the derivative notion that correlative to the right to such benefits comes a general social duty to maintain reasonable standards of health.
