The Global Health Network is pleased to announce the launch of a new seven-module eLearning course which has been adapted from the WHO training manual and resources on:‘Ethics in epidemics, emergencies and disasters: Research, surveillance and patient care’.
The course offers comprehensive training exploring the wide range of ethical issues faced by health professionals and policy makers working in the context of epidemics/pandemics and disaster situations, focusing primarily on the key areas of research, surveillance and patient care.
