Interventions of proven efficacy, implemented under conditions in which their benefits to society outweigh their well-understood and potentially far-reaching consequences. Establishment of clear authority for public health decision making during a pandemic see Item 3 below.
Workshop participants noted several critical weaknesses in current structures and strategies for pandemic planning. It is worth noting that the application of ethical values in formulating plans may be as, or more, important than the ethical values in the plans themselves, although both are critical elements in the planning process.
Longstanding conflicts between federal and state claims to public health authority, as demonstrated following hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
Insufficient engagement of state public health officials by federal pandemic planners. Poor communication between state and local public health officials and hospital administrators. Transparency in policy making and clear risk communication are necessary, but not sufficient, to ensure that fairness and justice prevail in the face of a threatened pandemic.
Many workshop participants suggested that there was a need for a transparent, ethical decision-making process that incorporates public debate and deliberation and that has as its goal the selection of interventions that are both understood by, and acceptable to, most people.
