This paper provides a summary of a longer paper of the same name. It outlines the principle of solidarity as it may be applied in the ethics of public health.

This paper summarizes the central components and the more variable dimensions of solidarity proposed by different authors. The goal here is to assist practitioners in reflecting on their own interpretations of the concept of solidarity and on the ways they do, or could, use it in their practices. Examining the multiple interpretations of solidarity may also facilitate discussion and deliberation among colleagues by allowing different perspectives to be better understood and navigate.
