Letter to Prime Minister Jean Chrétien re: Africa and Public Health at the 2002 G8 Summit in Kananaskis

“As humanitarian, human rights, health, labour and development organizations actively engaged in the Canadian and international responses to the global HIV/AIDS pandemic, we wish to commend you on your address to the World Economic Forum on the 1 February 2002 in New York, and on your leadership in support of the objectives outlined within the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) initiative. However, whilst NEPAD presents an important opportunity to reduce the levels of poverty and violence in Africa, we are concerned that some of the most serious challenges facing the continent are not receiving adequate attention within NEPAD or the G8 response . . . .”
