Preventing new outbreaks has proven difficult even in developed countries with good medical systems. However, as demonstrated by SARS, when our health care system goes on high alert, we thankfully have been able to prevent new plagues from killing hundreds of millions of people. It seems imperative to me then that we must do what we can to share medical knowledge about hygiene, epidemiology, technology, drugs, vaccines with countries that are less developed. Medicines and health care should not be seen as a for profit business but should be affordable for all. Everyone should have equal access to the health care that they need. With our ever shrinking world, all doctors everywhere should be able to provide first rate care, Our very lives depend upon it. Blessings.
