An Introduction to Global Health Ethics

This introductory textbook helps students understand and work through key areas of concern, assisting them in moving towards a more critical view of global health practice. Divided into two sections covering the theory and practice of global health ethics, the text begins by looking at definitions of global health and the field’s historical context. It draws on anti-colonial perspectives and concepts, developing social justice and solidarity as key principles to guide students. The second part focuses on ethical challenges students may face in clinical experiences or research. Topics such as working with Indigenous communities, the politics of global health governance, and the ethical challenges of advocacy are explored using a case study approach.
