Issues related to ethics, law and human rights enter into the everyday work of medicine and the health sciences. Almost daily we encounter scenarios that raise ethical concerns - from laboratory work on stored human tissue, interactions between health care providers and patients, to the shape of policies and programmes to deliver services to populations.
