11. Los fines de la medicina (The Goals of Medicine)

A group of researchers from the Hastings Center wrote an essay which has been translated by the Victor Grifols i Lucas Foundation into Spanish and Catalan. This document attempts to demystify medicine so that putting it to use can truly mean progress for all of humanity. The goals of medicine at the end of the twentieth century should go beyond curing the ill and lengthening life.

The Grifols Foundation has translated this document to highlight the values which the contents transmit and which articulate the objectives of the Foundation's activities. The translation of this document is intended to spread these values to those who work in the health sciences.
