Public Health Ethics

The Ethics in Public Health Emergency Preparedness Project is a collaboration of the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics and the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law's Public Health Law and Policy Program. The primary objective of the project is to create through consensus a model code of public health emergency ethics for health care, public health, and emergency preparedness officials and practitioners in Arizona. 

This effort commenced with a one-day meeting and workshop held on November 4, 2011. The meeting included individuals of varied backgrounds including: bioethicists, public health ethicists, emergency planners, hospital administrators, public health officials, legal counsel, and others. This select group convened to consider multifarious ethical issues at the intersection of public health and emergency preparedness.
