This paper examines the differences between clinical and public health ethics and provides several examples of contemporary public health challenges that pose ethical questions. The relations among ethics, rights and obligations are explored, because public health philosophers propose these as different ways for public health to align its activities to what we value. Resources for education in relation to the ethics of public health are identified. (Intern Med J 2004; 34: 435−439)
