hhe is an interdisciplinary program of research that, for the past 12 years, has encouraged reflection and empirical study of ethical challenges for humanitarian health practitioners and the organizations that engage them. The aim is to support ethical practice for the affected people and communities that humanitarian agencies interact with by informing best practices and encouraging education and preparation for ethical challenges in the field.
Dr. Schwartz is a professor in the Department of Health Research, Methods, Evidence & Impact (HEI); an Associate Member in the Department of Philosophy, and a member of CHEPA.
