The normative approach to defining an ethic for a field of biodefense and bioterrorism must include a multidisciplinary examination of issues from the disciplines of medicine, sciences, technology, law, international relations, public health, environment, and war and multiple perspectives. A proposal for a such an ethic framework is considered from four organizational perspectives: U.S. federal government, U.S. military, private sector and international duties.
