Yesterday's post linked to my new fundraising page FightAIDSTuberculosisMalaria as part of my recent Change.org page. Below is a post on Global Health that was sent to me from Change.org weekly by way of their Blog for Change. The blogger Alanna Shaikh is trying to determine what the next pandemic could be. Revisiting her site should provide updates to which disease is currently in front in the race. That night my two nieces were talking about an online game Pandemic II. The idea of the game is to wipe out the entire world population, which beyond a number of other questionable premises, makes little sense from an evolutionary perspective (for the virus, not for us). Perhaps the game could be used to test various diseases against each other. What would be even better is if somebody came up with a WHO versus Pandemic game where one could learn the challenges facing global health delivery.
