Privacy, public health, and controlling medical information

HEC Forum 22 (3):225-240 (2010)
Abstract
This paper argues that individuals do, in a sense, own or have exclusive claims to control their personal information and body parts. It begins by sketching several arguments that support presumptive claims to informational privacy, turning then to consider cases which illustrate when and how privacy may be overridden by public health concerns
