Annotation:

This 68-page document provides guidance for embedding ethics within the integrated global alert and response system for epidemics and other public health emergencies. It will support and strengthen the implementation and uptake of policies and programs in this context, and aims to complement existing guidance on ethics in public health. It grew out of concern at the World Health Organization (WHO) about ethical issues raised by the Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2014-2016.
