Quotes

"In contrast, I think that the leaders of the countries that failed to meet minimum performance targets should be asked why GDP growth did not lead to the expected improvements in the lives of mothers and children. An ongoing dialogue between a people who know what to expect and leaders who get support in how to deliver it is the engine of progress in public health. Better indicators of progress are fuel for this engine."
Mr Sylvain Baize, in charge of the Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers Reference Center, France's Pasteur Institute said, "Highly sophisticated P4 labs were necessary for Ebola research due to its extreme lethality. Lack of many P4 labs and qualified personnel to handle such potent viruses too slowed the research."
