Considerations of distributive justice inpacting upon the provision of geriatric care and the treatment of patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) are compared and contrasted between the U.S. and the U. K. Comparisons are drawn from differing degrees of individualist and collectivist idealogies between the two countries and analysis is further developed through use of the concepts of equity, uniformity and public accountability.
Notwithstanding the predominance of an individualist ideology in the United States the provision of ESRD services is based on a collectivist format.
Geriatric care and other welfare services more directly reflect the differences between collectivist and individualist ideologies in the two countries.
