About the course

Ethics in Public Health Practice is a short-term course designed for public health professionals involved in a range of roles including research, advocacy, training, program design and management, monitoring and evaluation, health promotion and communication.

Public health professionals are routinely confronted with ethical dilemmas and challenges including but not limited to: what kind of health threats and risks deserve an organized response by the health system? How to balance curative vs preventive and promotive care? How to communicate health messages that might conflict with local cultural norms? What benefits do health information systems serve and for whom? Addressing these and arriving at solutions that are informed by clear ethical reasoning is key to public health practice. Ethical and reflective public health practice is the cornerstone of realizing the common goal of Health for All.

  • Comprehensive understanding of ethical principles in public health and their applications in different settings
