I have received the following email from Andreas Reis, from the Health Ethics Unit at WHO HQ (Geneva) with some good news.


Dear Colleagues,I am happy to report that our WHO Training Manual on Ethics in Epidemics, Emergencies and Disasters has been translated into Chinese.Actually, this happened a few months ago, but I thought it would be worth sharing it given the current epidemic.Here is the link for the Chinese version of the publication:TR/17/016 - Ethics in epidemics, emergencies and disasters: Research, surveillance and patient care – Training manual 2015https://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665/196326/9787117270182-chi.pdf (‎5.807Mb)‎Thanks and best wishes,Andreas
