It will grapple with challenging questions about what public health issues we pay attention to and why, the use of limited resources, restrictive public health measures like quarantine, vulnerable and marginalized persons, health disparities, and globalization. This course addresses a range of issues in public health ethics. Case studies will be an important component of the course.
