April 30, 2012

CHDS recently co-sponsored the 7th Annual Program in Ethics and Health: Identified Lives vs. Statistical Lives – Ethics and Public Policy.

The conference investigated a wide variety of research questions including, "what factors trigger or explain this difference in attitude and behavior; how is it manifested when we think about global health problems, such as treatment and prevention (and “treatment as prevention”) for HIV/AIDS; does the law express such bias; is there any ethical justification for this bias, for example, as a matter of obligation toward each and every individual? Is it, alternatively, a moral error, rooted in well-known cognitive biases?"
