On WHO and the Ebola road map

It is good to note the World Health Organisation's proactivity with its issuing of a road map to guide and coordinate an international response to the Ebola outbreak ravaging west Africa.

The WHO has challenged itself to manage a process that hopes to bring to heel the world- wide transmission of the virus within 6- 9months, manage the consequence of any further spread, and also manage a wider socio- economic impact as rapidly evolving as the disease trajectory itself.

One hopes that this exercise would form the basis of a more concrete and sustainable strategy overall against a disease that has been around long enough for a much better awareness including strategies to effectively manage outbreaks of the disease, than was available prior to its hitting the shores of west Africa and taking everyone by surprise.
