The Ebola epidemic which surfaced this past year showed that there was a global lack of security in terms of being able to handle widespread disease, as certain regions of the world were not aptly able to handle outbreaks as others. The United Nations now recognizes that they were not readily prepared when the time came to combat ebola and that there needs to be reform in the way they handle future incidents like this. Problems which occur in one region of the world that is communicable will almost always become a global problem, as we have seen a few cases for ebola in United States citizens. No country is risk free from suffering from the same outbreaks as what they may consider an inferior country, and that is why it is the job of a global organization such as the World Health Organization which has pulled resources of numerous nations to combat these epidemics.
