This is the fourth volume in the series the Annual Balzan Lectures, which are held on alternate years in Italy and Switzerland, on the basis of the Agreements of collaboration signed by the International Balzan Foundation “Prize” with the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences and the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei to promote the diffusion of cutting edge research in the sciences and humanities.

Fair Society, Healthy Lives is a very timely contribution to the debate on what kind of society we should live in and the role of the state in creating such a society particularly in the field of health care. It is the latest in the Annual Balzan Lecture series destined for the general public.
