The United Nations World Health Organization appears to be developing a narrative that the severity of the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the fault of developed nations that are motivated only by profit, including the United States.

“Ebola emerged nearly four decades ago. Why are clinicians still empty-handed, with no vaccines and no cure?” Dr. Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, asked in a speech Monday to the Regional Committee for Africa’s meeting in Cotonou, Republic of Benin.

Answering her question, she said: “Because Ebola has historically been confined to poor African nations.”

Chan said “the R&D incentive is virtually non-existent.”

“A profit-driven industry does not invest in products for markets that cannot pay,” the WHO chief said.

Chan continued her argument linking the Ebola outbreak in West Africa to money by railing against developed nations for ignoring WHO appeals to make investments in the region’s underdeveloped heath-care system.
