We've known there is likely to be problems for some time now but little
seems to be happening.

Unicef and World Food Program now seem to be operating in there.  ehealth
Africa etc are doing some work on the Polio vaccine side.

Are these areas mapped well enough already or should the profile of any
current projects in the area be raised to assist?

Thanks John
