Abstract

In Germany, some regions do not provide a spatially inclusive and comprehensive supply with organ cancer centers. However, it must be remembered that comprehensive access to care cannot be pursued as the only goal of health policy. Instead, the trade-off between justice, health and patients' interests and economic performance and adequate funding must be considered.
