Grave Disparities

Possible Solutions to overcome Ebola Virus

Broken Health Care System have to be fixed

Health Care System of the countries affected
by Ebola must be improved

"In contrast, Liberia and Sierra Leone are poor, with almost non-existent
health systems.Liberia has 51 doctors to serve the country's 4.2 million
people (an average of 0.1 doctor per 10,000 people) and 136
for Sierra Leone's population of six million (an average of 0.2 per 10,000),
according to data compiled by the Afri-Dev.Info health and social development agency"

source of the evidence

This shows that, Sierra Leone and Liberia Health Care system
is weak enough to fight Ebola


The population need to be educated about the virus, how can we prevent a virus that's unknown
"Community learders in three countries in Liberia-Montserrado, Margibi, and Lofa- are receiving information sessions on Ebola
as part of the efforts to conatain the disease. WHO is supporting the Ministry of HEalth and Social Welfare to conduct
these session on the basics of the disease, how it is transmited and what people
can do to help authorities contain the disease. In the orientation sessions, printed materials are distributed
and footage is shown on topics like treatment and holding centers, proper burial of the dead, and others".

source of the evidence

This means that it's important to educated the population about the virus

Health care providers must be well trained

"As part of a comprehensive and coordinated response to the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa,
CDC has developed an introductory training course for licensed clinicians (e.g., nurses, physicians
and other healthcare providers) intending to work in an Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) in Africa.
This course will take place in the United States. The primary purpose
of the course is to ensure that clinicians intending to provide medical care to patients with Ebola have sufficient
knowledge of the disease and its transmission routes to work safely and efficiently in a well-designed ETU"

source of the evidence

This is important because if the health care workers don't have enough knowledge about the virus and continue to treat
patients it's going to put the them(health care workers) at risk.
