Abstract

Epidemiologist and public health expert Dr. Ginger Cameron joins Dr. Dennis Sullivan to discuss the ethics of the current Ebola crisis.

They consider these important questions:

  • What’s going on in West Africa? Why is the outbreak so severe?
  • Was it ethical to treat western missionaries with experimental drugs?
  • What about enforced quarantine? Does that violate individual rights?
  • How does medical triage work?
  • What are the latest ethical challenges?
