How third world medical disasters can affect your wellbeing
In this post, we will examine how third world medical disasters can affect your wellbeing. We live in a complex and increasingly shrinking world. It is a world in which the challenges continue to mount in nations and on continents. There is virtually no area of human life that is free from these increasing complex challenges. Some might argue that this is the natural order of things from epoch to epoch and that every generation has had to deal with similar or even worse situation. That is not an invalid assertion.
Every generation has its peculiar challenges in addition to those already in existence. However, the current climate is probably not ordinary. The dichotomy between the life of the citizens in the poorest regions in the world, in particular sub-Saharan Africa and some parts of south east Asia and the citizens on the other regions continues to worsen. This is particularly stark with respect to the situation between Africans, especially sub-Saharan Africans and other continental groups.
The epicenter of the 2014 and 2015 Ebola epidemic was West Africa, specifically three nations with poor healthcare systems and infrastructure. These nations are Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. Sadly, the poverty of healthcare infrastructure in sub-Saharan Africa is not restricted to these three nations. As you read this blog, I am sure you remember the fear and anxiety of the populations living thousands of miles from Africa across the mighty oceans during the 2014 and 2015 Ebola epidemic. The potential for widespread morbidity and mortality from the virus was obvious to all of us in all the continents. The fear engulfed healthcare workers, policy makers and other citizens. Thus, no matter where you live on this planet, this should be a wake up call for the realization of how third world medical disasters can affect your wellbeing.
My new book, RESCUE THYSELF: Change In Sub-Saharan Africa Must Come From Within, published last month, April 2017, addresses this issue in addition to other very critical issues facing the failing nations of Sub-Saharan Africa. It is a holistic bold examination of the genesis of the failure of these nations and offers possible solutions. The book also addresses the serious negative consequences for the rest of the world if the status quo is maintained. Please check it out. The information and the discussion it stimulates are far reaching. After reading the book, I hope you will be more aware of how third world medical disasters can affect your wellbeing.
The book is available at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and the publisher’s website at Rowman.com
The book is published by Hamilton Books, a member of Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Lanham Maryland.
