Methods and Practices: Public Health and Legal Preparedness for Disasters and Emergencies in Ghana
by Ishmael D. Norman
Methods and Practices: Public Health Legal Preparedness for Disasters and Emergencies in Sub-Sahara Africa is a detailed consideration of the imperative need for internally prepared programs for mitigating public heath emergencies in the region. The author warns against over-dependency on Western aid and intervention in response to infectious disease outbreaks, other health emergencies, and natural and human-caused disasters, arguing persuasively that Sub-Sahara Africa has the intellect, knowledge, and skills to design mitigation programs for emergencies as well as to address the substantial environmental problems that have resulted from the abusive practices of mining, oil, and gas companies. This work lays out proposals and considerations to make meaningful progress toward maintaining the economic and security gains made by some of the nations in Sub-Sahara Africa and further safeguarding the future of the entire region.
