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.”
Spring Convocation, June 3.
