Cyclone

Natural disaster necessitates a public health response.
Watching what little footage has been coming out of Myanmar has been like a Tropical medicine public health specialists worst nightmare. I remember feeling much the same way when I saw footage from Katrina. Somehow this is worse, because while in America we were just incompetent and unprepared, in Myanmar they seem to be actively denying any assistance. They need major help from outside the country, and need to let the rest of the world give it, before it is too late.
