Pandemic Flu Ethics at Seton Hall

Seton Hall Law School in Newark, New Jersey will be hosting a symposium on October 23-24, 2008, to examine the legal, ethical, and public policy issues related to developing a pharmaceutical response to an influenza pandemic. Panels will explore issues related to the development and approval of vaccines and antiviral drugs, both before and during a pandemic; the allocation of vaccines and antiviral drugs in situations of scarcity; and issues related to international equity.

Wonder if they will take up the ethics of withholding flu vaccine from North Korea, Iran and other countries the U.S. considers rogue states?
