UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa

“People say to me we have to rescue Africa because it could be grounds for extremism. People say to me we have to rescue Africa because we want them to be a trading partner.

I say, just use the old and wonderful Biblical injunction: respond to the human condition abroad because we are fundamentally our sisters’ and our brothers’ keepers.

And the beauty of being a graduate at this moment in time is that the world is open to you. And they need you.”

Honorary degree acceptance speech,
Spring Convocation, June 3.
