"IN OUR hyper-connected world, we can no longer dismiss certain threats as being "over there". Local phenomena can have global consequences. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the control of infectious disease.
In response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and beyond, which has killed more than 4000 people so far, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared an "international public health emergency". This declaration may be helping to mobilise the relief effort to an extent, but in practice it is merely a call for international solidarity plus a series of non-binding recommendations."
This should be a no-brainer. The only way we can achieve creating such an organization is by creating a Global Space Agency. We need to transcend national barriers and realize we are a single species that currently share a single home; the Spaceship Earth. We already have The World Health Organization, but it is underfunded and understaffed. It can't battle infectious diseases in the way that we need to on a global scale because countries don't have a commitment to financing it.
This is why we need a Global Space Agency, where every country in the world contributes 1% of it's GDP. That way we would have an incentive to eradicate and reduce as many infectious diseases as we can. It will increase the amount of money such an agency gets because it is dependent on countries GDP, and if people are sick, they can't work or go to school.
