    Monitoring ‘monitoring’ and evaluating ‘evaluation’: an ethical framework for monitoring and evaluation in public health: Table 1.Vijayaprasad Gopichandran & Anil Kumar Indira Krishna - 2013 - Journal of Medical Ethics 39 (1):31-35.
    Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is an essential part of public health programmes. Since M&E is the backbone of public health programmes, ethical considerations are important in their conduct. Some of the key ethical considerations are avoiding conflicts of interest, maintaining independence of judgement, maintaining fairness, transparency, full disclosure, privacy and confidentiality, respect, responsibility, accountability, empowerment and sustainability. There are several ethical frameworks in public health, but none focusing on the monitoring and evaluation process. There is a need to institutionalise the (...)

    Reducing the Ethical Burdens of Antimicrobial Stewardship using a Social Determinants Approach.Vijayaprasad Gopichandran - 2022 - Asian Bioethics Review 14 (2):183-190.
    Antimicrobial resistance is an emerging global health problem. Antimicrobial stewardship interventions attempt at regulating the prescription and use of antimicrobials so that the emergence of resistance is reduced. But antimicrobial stewardship interventions have several ethical issues such as inequity in access to antimicrobials among the poor who need them more, and limitation of the autonomy of prescribers and patients. Several upstream social determinants influence susceptibility to infections, antimicrobial prescription practices, and emergence of antimicrobial resistance. Some of these social determinants impose (...)

In this article, we frame the barriers to healthcare provision to persons with disabilities and propose an ethical framework to address these barriers. This ethical framework is derived from the basic (...)
