According to MOH, UHS will be required to respect Tuvunu’s cultural practices and religious beliefs in operating the hospital. For its part UHS is committed to multiculturalism and does not want to impose its views on the government or people of Tuvunu. The conditions presented by MOH are as follows: 1. No abortion may be performed at UHS-Tuvunu, unless it is absolutely necessary to save the life of the mother. 2.

Each would have advantages and disadvantages, and some would be more effective than others. Theoretically, we could require everyone who works in health policy or services to take a college-level course in ethics as a job requirement before being hired or to participate in on-the-job training on ethics. It is not at all clear, however, that this type of education or training would actually encourage ethical conduct on the job.
