Ethics and Ebola Webinar: Public Health Planning and Response

Ethics and Ebola Webinar: Public Health Planning and Response

On the heels of Liberia being declared free from Ebola virus disease (EVD), the World Health Organization announced a program to strengthen its response to public health emergencies, demonstrating that important conversations remain even as the epidemic wanes. Attention to the ethical considerations is not only essential during and in the immediate aftermath of this epidemic; it is imperative to apply the lessons learned from this outbreak to ongoing and future public health emergencies.

The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (Bioethics Commission) seeks to continue this important conversation regarding ethics and public health preparedness. Join us at Noon ET on Tuesday, June 16 for a discussion of Bioethics Commission’s February 2015 release: Ethics and Ebola: Public Health Planning and Response, the Commission’s brief on the Ebola epidemic.
