Fair Society, Healthy Lives, la quarta Annual Balzan Lecture del vincitore del premio Balzan 2004 Sir Michael Marmot, rappresenta un attualissimo contributo al dibattito riguardo al tipo di società in cui dovremmo vivere e al ruolo dello stato nella sua creazione, in particolare nel campo dell’assistenza sanitaria. Si tratta della più recente Annual Balzan Lecture destinata al grande pubblico.
