Africa's Future Is Up To Its People


Over the past ten years, Africa has made tremendous progress. As Secretary of State John Kerry wrote in a recent opinion piece, “real income has increased more than 30 percent, reversing two decades of decline. Seven of the world’s 10 fastest-growing economies are in Africa, and GDP is expected to rise 6 percent per year in the next decade.  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.”
