This chapter focuses on one of the most important dimensions of the diffusion of the health agenda: the opening up of the ‘ends’ of health policy. It discusses the concept of health and considers the ways in which various conceptions of health or other health-related goods are, or ought to be, embodied in policies and practices, as self-consciously chosen ends or as elements built into the value field. The second part of the chapter asks some more direct questions about the nature and boundaries of healthcare and health policy, about the difficulties of isolating health from health-related goods, or health-related goods from other goods, and about some of the value tensions inherent in health-related discourses.

Keywords:   healthcare, health policy, health agenda, opening up
