U.S. Africa Command Home
Travelers to Africa often question why native Africans don't seem to need the same force health protection measures recommended for non-Africans to include dress and not taking anti-Malarial medications. The answer is a bit complex but involves a degree of immunity that occurs for locals and persists only if they remain in their local area.

Frequent trips to Africa keeps me in touch with the painful reality on the Contingent which motivates me to remain focused on dedicated research for innovative ideas. I remain deeply concerned for the displaced and vulnerable and continue to bring my experience, working in conflict affected areas of Africa, to bear and contribute where appropriate to create lasting and positive change in the lives of the vulnerable.
