Ebola and Ethics – The Unfinished Agenda
Presented by the Global Health Ethics Unit of the World Health Organisation, the Wellcome Trust & the WHO Collaborating Centre for Global Health Histories
One year ago the world witnessed the worst Ebola outbreak in history. In response, a panel of 12 members was invited by the WHO Director General to advise on the ethical implications of the potential use of unregistered interventions during an epidemic. More than a year later, as the epidemic wanes, it is time to reflect on the effect of the panel’s advice on the various stakeholders involved in research during the outbreak response, the challenges they faced, and the implications of these recommendations for research conducted during future epidemics. Join us for a panel discussion on the topic as we welcome three experts deeply involved in supporting the Ebola response and the research during and after the epidemic.
With Dr Melba Gomes, Dr Annick Antierens, and Dr Philippe Calain
