The National Ethics Advisory Committee – Kāhui Matatika o te Motu (NEAC) is an independent advisor to the Minister of Health on ethical issues related to health and disability research and services.
NEAC has developed an update to its 2007 publication ‘Getting Through Together: Ethical Principles for a Pandemic(external link)’. The updated publication is called ‘Ethical Guidance for a Pandemic: Whakapuāwaitia e tatou kia puāwai tātoui’(external link). This online survey is seeking your feedback on the draft publication.
NEAC wants to know if the ideas contained within the publication are shared ideas based on shared values. Contributions from all voices, individuals, communities and organisations are welcomed and encouraged. This consultation provides an opportunity to inform the ethical guidance for future pandemics in Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
