PHIL 104 - AIDS to Zika: Ethics and Epidemics


The global AIDS pandemic presents a public health challenge of unprecedented dimensions – a challenge which will test not only our scientific and medical establishments, but our commitment to social justice, professional fidelity, interpersonal solidarity and, especially, to the care of the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged populations. This seminar will draw on the rich philosophical, biological, epidemiological, legal, medical, and sociological literatures in order to examine a number of the moral and public policy issues which have been raised by the AIDS pandemic. Particular attention is given to the issues raised by the pandemic in developing countries. Fulfills the Values Perspective (VP) requirement.

Program of Liberal Studies (PLS) Designation: VP

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered every other year
