“It should be noted that while the culture of oral tradition may have prevented many of Africa’s contributions to the world from being documented per Western standards, it should not be taken lightly that much of African history was purposefully and intentionally neglected as valid for centuries.”

“Lest we think African countries are the only places in the world struggling with health systems that fail to meet the needs of all of it’s constituents. We fought tooth and nail for years in the US to agree that a healthcare mandate was both necessary and essential for the progress of our society at a time where there were 40 million plus uninsured in a similarly disease-burdened society. Chronic and often preventable diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes may not directly mimic the communicable diseases characteristic of the African continent but are critical issues nonetheless. Until very recently, the unabashedly profit-centric American healthcare system focused heavily on excess, but billable, scans and tests, and a flooding of the system with specialists versus family medicine doctors who might preach the preventative measures necessary for America’s increasingly obese, diabetic, and heart disease ridden population.”
