West Africa has a rapidly growing population with inadequate infrastructure and relatively high health risks. The Ebola virus has affected Guinea and other densely populated countries. The spread of this infectious epidemic is primarily due in part to the harsh slow response from government officials and the lack of preparation within urban cities. A robust healthcare system is strongly needed in West Africa and other neighboring countries. In addition, the acquisition of beds, protective equipment, more healthcare scholars, dead-body management teams and funding are the pillars for containing and eradicating Ebola and other infectious diseases.
