Text from - WHO checklist for influenza pandemic preparedness planning

1.5.2 Ethical issues
Ethical issues are closely related to legal issues as mentioned above. They
are part of the normative framework that is needed to assess the cultural
acceptability of measures such as quarantine or selective vaccination of
predefined risk groups.

Questions to be addressed
Have ethical aspects of policy decisions been considered? Is there a lead-ing
ethical framework that can be used during the response to an outbreak
to balance individual and population rights?
 Consider ethical questions related to limiting the availability of a scarce
resource, such as rationed diagnostic laboratory testing, pandemic strain
influenza vaccine or antiviral drugs.
 Consider ethical questions related to compulsory vaccination for health-care
workers and workers from essential services.
 Consider the ethical issues related to limiting personal freedom, such
as may occur with isolation and quarantine.
 Ensure the establishment of an ethical framework for research, especially
when this involves human subjects.
