This publication provides guidance on the ethical issues that emerge in the context of surveillance. It was commissioned by the WHO/UNAIDS Surveillance Working Group to complement the discussions that take place with country staff in the course of training on second generation surveillance. The potential audience is therefore the epidemiologists and programme managers who are responsible for surveillance activities. The issues discussed here are, however, of interest to all health professionals concerned with the ethics of research on HIV.
