Description
The role of public health in understanding the threat of terrorism and warfare in the context of international and global concerns while also requiring an ethical response locally and from the community is examined. A continued focus on the basics of the public health infrastructure will form and inform the "new" ethics of sustainability, human rights, and community health and practice. The chapter concludes with implications and suggested roles for public health institutions.
