Africa and Disease Control


While Nigeria handled Ebola quite well, Sierra-Leone and Liberia lost many lives to the deadly disease. And this is just one case, HIV/AIDS has kept on ravaging our beautiful continent and other diseases like SARS and bird flu periodically arrive our shores and take beautiful lives away from us.

The reason why we continue suffering from diseases is because of no action or poor decisions by disease control agencies and personnel, we put little into disease research and prevention techniques then we end up paying more for treatment and consequent loss of men and women that could have added more to our continent. What do you suggest that leaders in the continent do? How can we can we control disease outbreaks in Africa?
