Ethical issues surrounding public health policy and practice regarding disease prevention and control often involve conflicting rights and values. Such conflicts partly arise from tension between individual and community interests or tension involving cultural beliefs and practices. This chapter outlines how such conflicts and tensions arise in the context of disease prevention and control by exploring ethical issues associated with mandatory treatment and vaccination, disease screening and surveillance, diseases prone to stigma, access to care, health promotion incentives, and emergency response.
