Public Health and Bioethics
Lachmann, Peter J.
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1998 Jun; 23(3): 297-302.
Conduct that satisfies certain bioethical doctrines may come into conflict with the needs and ethics of public health. The growth of antibiotic resistance in bacteria and the spread of HIV both contribute to the difficulty of controlling infectious disease. These two sets of priorities need to be reconciled and this is likely to require a reassessment of prevailing ethical doctrines in the face of the needs of public health.
