The west should be absolutely shovelling resources into west Africa to stop this disease. They wont of course.
There are several western medical teams already working out there, but there is a limit to what the wealthier countries can do for the affected countries as they do not readily accept good advice, nor do they have the organisational ability to implement it. They usually just want money, which is then snaffled into some offshore bank account by officials.

There are some really dedicated and worthy people in all west african countries (several local doctors have already sacrificed their lives trying to combat the disease). Unfortunately their heroic efforts will always be outweighed by the feckless and venal majority.
