Our publications keep professionals working across the public, private, and academic sectors informed on the most important developments and issues in health security and biosecurity.
The UPMC Center for Health Security is grateful for the opportunity to provide comments on the ethical issues related to public health emergency response that have arisen as a result of the Ebola Virus epidemic in West Africa. The following comments reflect the collective views of several staff members of our organization but do not necessarily represent the views of all our staff and do not necessarily represent the official views of UPMC. We address each of the 7 issues posed in the Request for Comment. https://bioethicsarchive.georgetown.edu/pcsbi/blog/2014/12/18/bioethics-commission-requests-comment-on-ethical-considerations-in-the-evd-response/index.htmlhttp://blog.bioethics.gov/2014/12/18/bioethics-commission-requests-comment-on-ethical- considerations-in-the-evd-response/
