    The Ebola Clinical Trials: A Precedent for Research Ethics in Disasters.Philippe Calain - 2018 - Journal of Medical Ethics 44 (1):3-8.
    The West African Ebola epidemic has set in motion a collective endeavour to conduct accelerated clinical trials, testing unproven but potentially lifesaving interventions in the course of a major public health crisis. This unprecedented effort was supported by the recommendations of an ad hoc ethics panel convened in August 2014 by the WHO. By considering why and on what conditions the exceptional circumstances of the Ebola epidemic justified the use of unproven interventions, the panel's recommendations have challenged conventional thinking about (...)

  4. In Search of the 'New Informal Legitimacy' of Medecins Sans Frontieres.P. Calain - 2012 - Public Health Ethics 5 (1):56-66.
    For medical humanitarian organizations, making their sources of legitimacy explicit is a useful exercise, in response to: misperceptions, concerns over the ‘humanitarian space’, controversies about specific humanitarian actions, challenges about resources allocation and moral suffering among humanitarian workers. This is also a difficult exercise, where normative criteria such as international law or humanitarian principles are often misrepresented as primary sources of legitimacy. This essay first argues for a morally principled definition of humanitarian medicine, based on the selfless intention of individual (...)

    Understanding Power Relationships: Commentary on Wurr C and Cooney L 'Ethical Dilemmas in Population-Level Treatment of Lead Poisoning in Zamfara State, Nigeria'.P. Calain - 2014 - Public Health Ethics 7 (3):308-310.
    After 4 years of relief activities, it is difficult to keep managing the lead poisoning epidemic in northern Nigeria as an emergency situation, while it appears clearly to be a more complex, widespread and chronic public health issue than anticipated. Making the continuing treatment of children conditional upon commitments from impacted families to adhere to safe mining practices is unlikely to bring about any long-term benefit. This is because such commitment is ultimately not in the hands of the victims or (...)
