This session explores the ethical issues in dealing with infectious disease threats in a global environment. Ethical issues can be wide-ranging and include: allocation of scarce resources, responding with a limited evidence-base, accelerating the pharmaceutical development process, negotiating politics and belief when it is in conflict with science, etc. Issues from the current Ebola crisis are explored to understand the nature of these issues, and to generate lessons to guide future responses.
