Many countries around the world are now facing the ever challenging debate of facing the costs of the expensive treatments to prevent the spread of the swine flu. There is no stopping this flu as of yet -- and small countries like Togo are facing difficulties in providing the funds to ensure the safety of their citizens.
This Togolese population of just over 6 million people are taking measures into their own hands and making sure they are doing everything they can to prevent them from getting the flu. They are staying in doors, limiting contact, and practice healthier eating habits -- all ways suggested by the World Health Organization.
This densely populated country is having a hard time doing so because the majority of the country makes money by harvesting fields and dealing with livestock, but the Togolese government is strongly urging them to limit the amount of contact with livestock.
