Abstract and Keywords
Global health ethics is a burgeoning field of thought and application. It has roots in the four traditional pillars of biomedical ethics—autonomy, non-maleficence, justice, and beneficence. The ethical underpinnings of four global health organizations/institutions, Americare Neurosurgery International, Child Family Health International, the Mark Stinson Fellowship in Underserved and Global Health, and the Latin American School of Medicine, are described in this article. The ethical challenges and mandates of each organization can guide health care providers and institutions engaged in global health work. The ethical challenges and mandates of each organization can guide health care providers and institutions engaged in global health work. The article draws upon examples from the domain of neurology and neurosurgery to illustrate salient principles.
Jessica Evert is Medical Director of Child Family Health International and recipient of Global Health Education Consortium’s 2010 Christopher Krogh Award. Dr. Evert is a longtime advocate for global health medical education quality and ethical standards and has completed international work in Kenya, Guatemala, Australia, and Cuba.
Robert Huish is Assistant Professor in International Development Studies at Dalhouse University. He is the 2004 Trudeau Scholar and holds a Ph.D in geography from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC and a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at L’Université de Montréal. His research rests between the pursuit of global health equity and the understanding of public health ethics.
Gary Heit received his Ph.D in neuroscience from UCLA and his MD from Stanford. After serving as an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and Director of Functional Neurosurgery at Stanford, he joined the neurosurgery staff of the Permanente Medical Group of Northern California. Dr. Heit is Co-Founder of Americare Neurosurgery International, dedicated to promoting locally sustainable, modern neurosurgical care in developing countries.
Evaleen Jones founded the Child Family Health International (CFHI) and holds a position on the Clinical Faculty at Stanford University School of Medicine. Her commitment to underserved people stems from growing up in rural New Jersey and spending her college years in the Appalachian region of Virginia where poverty prevails. CFHI has over 250 global partners, sending more than 700 medical students abroad each year.
Scott Loeliger is a family physician, Director of the Mark Stinson Fellowship in Global Health and Underserved Medicine at the Contra Costa Regional Medical Center in California, and Program Director for Global Health Through Education and Training (GHETS) where he works to develop family medicine and primary healthcare in international settings.
Steve Schmidbauer is Executive Director of Child Family Health International (CFHI), a leading non-governmental organization (NGO) placing health science students on global health education programs in ways that are socially responsible and financially just.
