 DISCUSSION: ETHICAL DILEMMAS IN PUBLIC HEALTH

300 WORD DISCUSSION

Public health is a field fraught with ethical dilemmas. Why? Because in public health, the stakes are high. Decisions may involve life-and-death consequences. In response to a disaster, for example, choosing one population to serve may have dire consequences for another population in equally critical straights. Issues are complex. For example, ethical guidelines in HIV trials in South Africa dictate that participants receive “state-of-the-art” HIV reduction interventions, yet some stakeholders believe that waiting for state-of-the-art interventions is not practical or economically feasible and can therefore be a harmful practice (Essack, 2014). Decreasing budgets and increasing costs necessitate that public health leaders sometimes must make difficult decisions involving equally deserving programs, or between the rights of the many versus the rights of the few or of individuals. Public health also serves the important goal of ensuring that benefits of interventions are distributed fairly and justly within populations.

Thus, it behooves public health administrators to familiarize themselves with the complexities of ethical principles and strategies and to be aware of their own alignment of ethical principles with personal values.


For this week’s Discussion, reflect on an ethical dilemma that you have faced in a public health setting.
