Multifaceted Relations Between Bio-Economy and Biomedicine Based on Legal Anthropology and “One Health”

Abstract: Above all else, human life is priceless and therefore it should be protected, thus recognising its sacred character. Human health was defined as “a state of total physical, mental and social wellbeing, not only as the absence of disease or infirmity”, hence “every human being has the right to an environment with minimum risk to health and has the right to health services that can prevent or alleviate one’s suffering, treat diseases and help maintain and promote health throughout one’s lifetime”.

The protection of fundamental human rights and liberties, as a recipient of medical services, led to a new science, “biomedicine” which merges several disciplines in the defence and promotion process of health. “Bioethics” is defined as science that uses an interdisciplinary methodology and focuses on the systemic examination of human behaviour in the field of life and health sciences, considered in the light of their moral values and principles. Bio-economic issues are aiming to increase the efficiency of medical care through the use of modern bio-investigations and treatments based also on legal anthropology. All these arguments underpinned the development of the legislation on human rights and biomedicine, bioethics respectively.
