In public health and in ethics, context matters.
This site presents multiple resources for public health professionals to use in infectious disease outbreak response. They include:
- A video (at right), “Ethics in the Context of Disease Outbreaks”
- An overview of an ethics guidance document for public health professionals, as well as the document itself
- A PowerPoint presentation to be used in conjunction with the ethics guidance document
Regardless of geography, infectious disease outbreak response strategies should be effective, fair, respectful and transparent.
