Pandemic Influenza

A pandemic would have the potential to place unexpected burdens on healthcare professionals, national and local infrastructures, employers, and medical resources. Preparing for a pandemic involves training responders and stockpiling medications, but associated ethical issues would also need to be addressed. This portal provides links to Center activities, events and publications on this topic and access to an extensive bibliography, "Pandemic Resources", for additional research.


In addition to the multiple resources listed below, the Center for Health Ethics has created a Health Ethics Pandemic Response Educational Toolkit to help educate the public about your community's pandemic response.
