VAZQUEZ PARRA, José Carlos. Blood Donation. A Philosophical Approach to the Rationality of the Assignment of High Risk Patients. En-clav. pen [online]. 2015, vol.9, n.17, pp.13-23. ISSN 2594-1100.

The need for appropriate health policies in the management and donation of tissues, organs and substances responds to the constant international demand for health systems that not only guarantee the sufficient supply of these elements, but also their safety. However, some of the measures taken to address these needs are highly questionable, as methods such as the exclusion of certain population groups considered to be high risk could not only be considered as dubious and discriminatory measures, but even inconsistent and with clear limitations of rationality. Elster's broad theory of rationality allows us to approach a new way of assessing the action's rationality, thus opening the possibility of rethinking the different actions that have been taken regarding this issue, the value of their purpose and the internal rationality of decisions made.
