ABSTRACT

Ethics Guidance for the Public Health Containment of Serious Infectious Disease Outbreaks in Low-Income Settings: Lessons from Ebola   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "Regardless of geography, public health response to infectious disease outbreaks should be effective, fair, respectful and transparent. Too often, however, outbreaks are met with fear, discrimination, and interventions with limited evidence, raising ethical as well as public health concerns. This ethics guidance is intended to help navigate response challenges that arise particularly where resources are significantly constrained, where core public health functions generally are weak, where there are high levels of economic, social, or political inequities, and where outside personnel are often brought in to aid in the response."
