Abstract

The Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa (2014) has raised some ethical questions surrounding public health measures for its containment, the use of experimental drugs and the development of vaccines against this disease.

This paper explores some of these issues from the perspective of ethics in biomedical research. Ebola virus epidemic is a suitable study model to address multilateral efforts in research as well as to analyze anthropological aspects of public health and social, economic and political determinants of global health.
