[image: alt]The Loyola School of Theology invites you to the oral defense
of the STL Tesina entitled "*Just Health Care: Improving Access by the Poor
as a Catholic Response*" by Fr. EUSELITO A. TULIPAS on May 8, 2017
(Monday), 2:30 pm, at the Tipanan ni San Ignacio, Second Floor, Loyola
School of Theology. The Board of Examiners is composed of Fr. Eric Marcelo
Genilo, S.J., S.T.D. (Principal Examiner), Fr. Peter Pojol, S.J., S.T.D.
(Adviser), and Fr. Romeo Intengan, S.J., M.D., S.T.L. The defense is being
held in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree Licentiate
in Sacred Theology with field of specialization in Moral Theology.  It is
open to the public.
 *Abstract.  Health care inequality directly affecting the poor’s access to
scarce resources demands a collective response from various sectors of
society. This study seeks a framework for such a response using Catholic
Christian and secular insights. The Catholic Christian framework of
“preferential option for the poor” grounded in Sacred Scriptures and modern
social teaching of the Church offers three expressions for reflection and
action in relation to the moral problem: charity, distributive justice and
participation in health care policy determination.  Secular reflections of
just distribution of limited health care goods have been influenced by
theoretical frameworks such as utilitarianism, libertarianism,
communitarianism and egalitarianism, each with differing emphases. The
Catholic Christian and secular frameworks converge in endorsing the
provision of a ‘decent minimum’ of health care which is an assurance that
everyone, including the poor, can have access to basic health care services
in the midst of scarcity. The issue under study gains a more concrete face
through an assessment of practices by two health care facilities, one
Catholic and one non-sectarian, using the framework of “preferential option
for the poor”.*
