Daniel Wikler: Ethics and E-cigs – An analysis and a proposal

Dokumentation


Daniel Wikler, Mary B. Saltonstall Professor of Ethics and Population Health vid Harvard School of Public Health

ABSTRACT
Two letters on electronic cigarettes (“E-cigs”) reached Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization in mid-2014, each signed by dozens of tobacco control specialists. One commended WHO for urging that E-cigs be regulated like tobacco products; the other urged just the opposite. The field of tobacco control remains deeply divided. This talk seeks to determine whether this impasse can be traced back to differences in ethical views; and concludes with a proposal for an ambitious new public health initiative that seeks the allegiance of both sides.

Daniel Wiklers forskning rör sig kring populationsetik och internationell hälsa, bland annat om hur hälsoresurser distribueras och om dilemman i offentligt finansierad vård.

Se Daniel prata om forskning på mänskliga ägg.
