Lynn commented on Community Trust and Beliefs

We should be listening and researching not just looking at high tech solutions. And it needs to be African led. http://m.aljazeera.com/se/201411654947478

And, as we now know, the US Gov't has no interest in baseline research. Not a single highlight was accepted or asked to be written up for funding so all of that do this type of work will be on our own to find funding to get to the bottom of the issue with the community. Please take the time to read this http://article...it hits home; now if we could get USAID to read it as well as the White House. http://m.aljazeera.com/se/201411654947478

Howard, many of the larger international NGOs have videos on the ground as does BBC where they have gone into rural areas of Sierra Leone and Liberia. IMC, IRC, MSF have all posted videos and pictures on their websites (these are the main international medical NGOs in the areas). IMC has been in Sierra Leone since the war so they are well established. They had a great video that showed the inside of a treatment center.
