African Leaders Strive To Strike Balance In U.N. General Assembly Speeches, Highlighting Progress But Also Health, Development Challenges

Associated Press: At U.N., Africa balances highlighting its progress and poverty
“…The dance the African leaders must perform each year [at the U.N. General Assembly] is delicate. Paint too bleak a picture, and rich countries, global funds, and the U.N. system itself might wonder: What happened to the money we gave last year? But fail to lay out the very real challenges of people living through drought and rebel attacks and crop failure and malaria, and they will fail to ignite the urgency needed to solve those problems…” (DiLorenzo, 9/27).
