Liberty-limiting measures in infectious disease control
This project was carried out between 2009 and 2014 by André Krom as PhD student, in collaboration with Jim van Steenbergen (RIVM/LCI) and Marcel Verweij (Utrecht/Wageningen). We made an inventory of ethical issues in the national coordination of infectious disease control and held more than 10 ethical deliberation sessions with local infectious disease specialists at regional community health centers (GGDs). The output consisted of a series of ethical case discussions in Infectieziektebulletin, as well as André Krom's dissertation Not to be sneezed at. On the possibility of justifying infectious disease control measures by appealing to a mid-level harm principle.
