Africans, Leaders Can Create ‘Better Future’ For African Continent

Washington Post: Africa is on the rise, and we need to help make sure it continues
John Kerry, U.S. secretary of state

“The best untold story of the last decade may be the story of Africa. … HIV infections are down nearly 40 percent in sub-Saharan Africa and malaria deaths among children have declined 50 percent. Child mortality rates are falling, and life expectancy is increasing. This is a moment of great opportunity for Africans. It is also a moment of decision. … Africa can be a beacon for the world: Dramatic transformations are possible, prosperity can replace poverty, cooperation can triumph over conflict. This is tough work, and it requires sober commitment, regional cooperation and a clear vision of a better future. The goal of a prosperous, healthy and stable continent is within reach if Africans and their leaders make the right decisions” (5/2).
