RÉSUMÉ

Global health is an exciting field and brings with it many privileges as we work and study alongside diverse people from communities around the globe. Cultivating "ethical sensibility" is not about taking the fun out of what we do, but rather ensuring that above all we do no harm to ourselves, other individuals, or the communities within which we work. Ethics in Global Health is a virtual space for dialogue regarding shared ethical concerns and support for unique ethical dilemmas. Our mission as a regional platform at Ahmedabad Dental College and Hospital (ADCH) is to foster primary healthcare needs of patients, with chief importance given to follow-up treatment. In addition, we attempt to create a dialogue among international colleagues regarding cultural differences and needs, while educating one another about similarities in research, respect for life, and problem solving. This review highlights two faceted introductions to global health ethics. First, the framework of "borrowed" ethics that currently forms the core of global health ethics is studied under subsets of the moral significance of health and boundaries. Second, a selection of exemplar ethical topics is presented to illustrate the range of topics within global health ethics.
