Winning Against a Global Threat - Ebola: A Coordinated Response

In this era of multi-national armed conflicts that threaten international security, often, much attention is paid and given to these events, while a wider more dangerous virulent threat to international security - global health, is overlooked. The recent outbreak of Ebola in western Africa(Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone) had all the trimmings to turn into a full blown global catastrophe to inflict more harm than all the armed conflicts if not contained and attacked.

But thanks to requests for assistance by some African nations and rapid coordinated consulted responses by groups like the Elizabeth R. Griffin Research Foundation Biorisk Engagement and Management Solutions Team and the Hospitals for Humanity, Ebola will be defeated. While the work of such groups might not be featured on Prime Time News programs, humanity owes a great deal to such groups that respond to the calls of nations in need of help to tackle health problems that could become global disasters. Just as soldiers leave their loved ones behind to fight armed conflicts, these teams of health specialists and consultants, similarly leave their loved ones behind and risk infection in order to rid our international community of affliction to these dreaded diseases.

Moreover, that this disease has not gone full blown globally is also a testament of common sense governance by countries like Nigeria, which understanding the ramifications of this disease if left unchecked, that it took the initiative to invite Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner and his team from the Elizabeth R. Griffin Foundation and the Hospitals for Humanity to come to Nigeria to conduct a comprehensive capacity-strengthening program for Nigerian healthcare workers to prepare, to prevent and to respond to cases of Ebola. The River State Ministry of Health in Nigeria has set the bar for other nations to follow in the battle against Ebola. Such foresights will contribute to the final defeat of the Ebola health threat to global security.
