The purpose of this training is to expand upon the training provided on February 25, 2014  regarding the basic concepts of  public health ethics and to focus on ethical issues that arise in public health interventions for non-communicable diseases.  We will explore how interventions for non-communicable diseases raise different ethical issues than those for infectious diseases and consider how to best address those ethical tensions.  We will discuss when it is appropriate or acceptable for public health to limit individual choice either directly (for example by requiring use of helmets or prohibiting use of food vouchers for soft drinks) or indirectly (such as increasing taxes on cigarettes); think through the ethical considerations that need to be thought through in these two situations; and consider how to best facilitate the adoption of public health interventions for non-communicable diseases.

Audience:  State health departments, Federal and State Partners, Chronic Disease Practitioners
