Public Education on Ebola

The actor Isaiah Washington has launched an Ebola education campaign using football (soccer) to educate the world about the disease. The Ebola Ball Kick Challenge is intended to draw attention to the ongoing plight, which has caused an estimated 10,000 deaths in West Africa and created an estimated 16,000 orphans And the regional economy has been devastated, with an estimated  $1.6 billion in one of the world’s poorest regions.

What do you think? Will the Ebola Ball Kick Challenge have the impact Washington hopes? Why? What, if anything, should be done to address the spread of Ebola in West Africa?
