African Leaders Want More Support For Ebola-Hit Nations

MONROVIA, September 19 (LINA) - Six African leaders have emphasized the need for regional and global support to the affected Ebola African countries and that a major investment be made by African governments in Science and Technical Research.

 The leaders also proposed the formulation of strategies that will assist the economies of the affected countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone during the post-Ebola period.

The leaders, who were panelists at the round table discussion on HIV-AIDS and Ebola on the continent on September 15 included Equatorial Guinea President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta, Benin President Boni Yayi, the President of Sao Tome and Principe Manuel Pinto Da Costa, Congolese President Denis Sassou Ngueso and the Gabonese Prime Minister Daniel Ona Ondo.

During the discussion, they all agreed that African Governments through the African Union need to do more in establishing a body of medical experts that will conduct research in finding a vaccine or treatment for HIV-AIDS and now Ebola which are ravaging the continent's population and economy severely.

According to a dispatch, the African leaders called on political leaders and researchers in Africa to partner and allocate more resources in research endeavors so as to have African solutions to challenges facing the continent.

They said good health and peace are two key ingredients for human stability and called on the international community to channel most of the aid towards these two areas which they believe will enhance the growth and development of the world.
