AfricaVox 2007: fresh perspectives on the G8

At next week’s G8 Summit in Germany , the spotlight is once again on world leaders to see if promises that were made in 2005 have been kept.

AfricaVox’s team of award-winning journalists from Ethiopia , Uganda , Mozambique and South Africa will be among the few African journalists to attend the Summit .

For nine days starting on Friday 1 June, we’ll bring you their fresh insights, sharp reporting, and pithy analysis on HIV/AIDS and healthcare, international aid, debt relief and climate change.

Our coverage will provide you with new perspectives and differing views as the events unfold. And it will allow you to hear about people in Africa directly affected by decisions made at the G8.


To make sure that these African voices are heard as widely as possible, you might like to place a link to the AfricaVox 2007 blog on your website or newsletter using the following button:
