A Survey of Ethical Principles and Guidance Within Selected Pandemic Plans – National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy [Canada] – June 2011

“This document provides a survey of the explicit goals, ethical principles, and ethics-related recommendations put forward by a selection of national, sub-national and international pandemic preparedness plans and policies.

Moral theories and concepts draw attention to and encourage debate on the variety of ends, goals, and means that can be adopted in preparing for and responding to public health emergencies.

This survey provides a concise comparison of several ethical frameworks in order to help us to think about how we might deliberate to justify difficult decisions in the context of an actual public health emergency.”
