Intercultural medical ethics are a new, necessary approach in ethics, as the example of Haiti dramatically showed during the aftermath of the catastrophic earthquake in 2010. For the search term « intercultural ethics » no hits are found in Google. Intercultural ethics are not meant to be a new kind of specialized or universal ethics, but are considered to be an immanent part of general ethical thinking and cover both systematical thoughtful reflexion and analysis of significant ethical subjects in medicine. At the same time it acknowledges and highly esteems interculturally different starting points, ways of thinking and living forms. Intercultural medical ethics respect explicitly a pluralism of moral values and counteracts moral relativism. The central reference is instead represented by anthropology and therefore the individual human being. It’s main instrument is communication (discourse ethics) on the same level. Intercultural medical ethics proceed from the participation of all in human existence and human dignity and do not call for one-sided reflexion, but positively, for responsible action.
