Africa's healthcare crises is well documented, even if not always accurately. What is undeniable is that millions of Africans are dying - from HIV/AIDs, tuberculosis, malaria and other illnesses - some of them easily preventable. Dr Akukwe examines the healthcare policies on Africa's major diseases - HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, showing how the healthcare crisis is bound up with, and worsens the general crisis of poverty in the continent. He also discusses how a different form of policy intervention can make all the difference. ________________________ Dr Chinua Akukwe is an adjunct professor of both global health and community/preventative health at the George Washington University School of Public Health, Washington, DC, USA, and also Chairman of the Technical Advisory Board of the university's Africa Center for Health and Human Security. He was equally a former member of the Executive Committee of the university's Medical Center Faculty Senate, the highest representative body of all professors affiliated with the medical center. A former Vice-Chairman of the Executive Committee and Governing Board of the National Council for International Health, NCIH, (now known as the Global Health Council, Washington, DC), Dr Akukwe was also a member of the International Human Rights Committee of the American Public Health Association as well as a board member of the Christian Connections for International Health, an international ecumenical organization based in the United States.
