Global health issue has been proliferated nowadays in most of part of the world. Pandemics outbreak, for instances, has been haunted numerous stakeholders from health sectors. Looking at the status quo, in some circumstances, no major actor, by both the international community and the states' unpreparedness, seemed to have noticed the possible severity that can be done by the outbreaks. This health issue can overwhelm not only public health systems but public confidence in governments, international organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), and health care providers. At the height of the 2009, in H1N1 pandemic fears’ case, governments enacted travel restrictions and closed down schools and businesses suffered considerable declines as potential customers avoided public spaces.
Lack of proper equipment, training and funds; lead to all the volunteer and health worker working with international organizations potential hosts to the disease. In the end, those health workers had to be evacuated back to their country of origin; which was a potential threat all by itself. Besides, as the days pass, the moral side of the outbreak starts to overweigh the medical side of it. Unaffected states continue to debate on the fear of spread to their countries and tend to choose not send any help because of it; meanwhile that is the very reason that why Ebola is a threat to them. Outbreak has outpaced the efforts to stop it; however, the humankind can overcome the disease with dedication and proper planning.
