MOSCOW, November 23, 2014 (Valdai Discussion Club) -- Globalization presses a core challenges to many historical assumptions. Given Africa’s recent strong growth figures, a perceptible shift has now moved in the direction of the continent’s “rise” opposed to the previous “hopeless continent” rhetoric.

Ebola: Avoiding Outbreak in other Parts of Africa

EbolalaBy Dr. Chinua Akukwe

WASHINGTON, DC, November 19, 2014 (AWG) -- World Health Organization (WHO) latest figures indicate more than 14,000 Ebola cases and more than 5,000 reported deaths. These cases and deaths may represent only one third of morbidities and mortalities from Ebola, according to the WHO and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) due to a combination of at-risk populations shunning contact with health services, poor data collection mechanisms and weak health systems. The current global response effort is overwhelmingly focused on containing and eventually ending the 2014 Ebola outbreak in three West Africa hardest-hit countries: Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. I briefly review how best to restrict possible outbreaks of the 2014 Ebola outbreak in other parts of the continent.
