CANTARINO, Ligia  e  MERCHAN-HAMANN, Edgar. To think about ethics in influenza surveillance?. Rev. Bioét. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.3, pp.468-474. ISSN 1983-8042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1983-80422015233083.

Epidemiological surveillance, important in the indication and implementation of public health policies and decision-making, constitutes a link between health services and research. In this context, the ethical issues found in daily surveillance practices require in-depth reflective processes and specific qualified discussions. Some ethical questions related to influenza surveillance were considered for the elaboration of this reflective essay. Those questions were held up against a range of bioethical, human rights, right to health, public health and ethics’ concepts. The proposed reflections address the principles of bioethics, relating them to the characteristics of surveillance actions directed to the participants of the survey on respiratory viruses circulation.
