This course uses the analytical tools provided by ethics and social philosophy to examine public health research, policy and practice. The course includes both foundational elements - an introduction to utilitarianism, liberalism and communitarianism as ethical frameworks for public health - and the application of these elements to aspects of: epidemiological research; health promotion; disease prevention and control; public health research and practice in international settings; community based practice and research; and public health policy.
