Equality in healthcare : - a critical ideology analysis of the influence of privatization on the meaning of equality in healthcare (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis investigates if privatization of the Swedish healthcare system influences our view on the meaning of equality. This system is based on the principle that all people are equals and that healthcare should be provided on the basis of need. I apply critical ideology analysis to investigate how our view of equality might change because of the evolvement of society. A critical view may be explained as an interest in exploring things that seem obvious to many. Important questions to answer are why equality is regarded as such a natural concept in the society and how healthcare is actually provided. I analyze government documents, such as debates and inquiries about privatization and identify a complexity regarding the conception of equality and its relation to ideas of freedom and justice.
