New guidelines from WHO on ethics during a pandemic

It's always good to see new pandemic preparedness tools come out - WHO now has "Ethical considerations in developing a public health response to pandemic influenza"

A whole range of sticky topics, from quarantine to allocating scarce resources, would be issues during a pandemic and it's best to think through them ahead of time.

This is a great reference tool for NGOs or civil society groups interested in doing advocacy work at the national level to follow best practices during a pandemic
