Ethical principles in healthcare

The global organisations for doctors, nurses and pharmacists have adopted a set of new ethical principles. ‘Ethical principles of health care in times of armed conflict and other emergencies’ is a code of ethics that provides a common core for these healthcare professions. Organisations that signed the code in Geneva, Switzerland, were the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), the World Medical Association, the International Council of Nurses, the International Committee of Military Medicine and the International Federation of Medical Students Association, representing over 30 million healthcare workers. It can be accessed via the FIP website
