A patient discontinued his treatment. The PHO locked him in the prison's hospital? (TRUE STORY) In this part of the lecture, I discuss a real case that happened in a rural area where a TB patient discontinued his treatment and ended up sent to jail. Watch to see how this all happened and then discuss the following ethical issues: Is the patient's right to refuse treatment absolute? If not, when and where to draw the line to the point of forcing them to be treated/isolated?What are the limits of the public health authorities and the State in general when it comes to people's choices?What are the ethical principles that should guide our interventions as public health physicians in managing patients with infectious diseases?

How best to prepare for a PhD program in Gender and Humanitarian ActionAmel Hermi Posted 4 days ago Edited by Shiela Marcos 4 days ago ReplyOptions Dropdown I am looking to enroll in a PhD program focusing on Gender and Humanitarian action. I am a practitioner and I wish to maintain a link with the academic world and sort of feed back my field knowledge into humanitarian learning platforms and also use the analysis and academic knowledge in my field practice. Are there any members in the community who can provide advice on this?
I wish to discuss and get some tips and support on the specific steps that I should be taking next - for example, to start actively sharing knowledge, drafting articles, etc., as preparation prior to enrolling in a PhD program. Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.
