West Africa: Good and Bad News

Good and bad news surfaces as West Africa emerges from the Ebola crisis. The good news first. Within the last week, the World Health Organization(WHO) announced that Liberia was Ebola-Free while Guinea had seven cases, and Sierra Leone had two.

Leading the Health Systems and Innovation cluster at WHO, France's Dr. Marie Kieny was optimistic. At a recent news briefing in Switzerland she proclaimed: "The best news is we are going to zero cases; there is absolutely no doubt about that," she said. However having no cases of Ebola presents a huge obstacle to the development of new vaccines and therapeutic regimes against Ebola. Reportedly, in lieu of eradicating Ebola, clinical trials conducted by in part by International Pharmaceutical Giants: GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, and New Link Genetics may fail to provide adequate data on a vaccine's efficacy as the number of Ebola have cases dramatically fell.
