In 2005 the G8 was urged to help make poverty history. AfricaVox reporters were among the few African journalists at the G8 Summit in Gleneagles when international leaders pledged to increase aid, forgive international debt, and fund HIV treatment worldwide.
In 2007 African development is back on the G8 agenda, and we’ve assembled a new team to see if those promises have been kept.
For nine days starting on 1 June, journalists from Ethiopia, Uganda, Mozambique and South Africa will bring you stories and perspectives from Africa on HIV/AIDS and healthcare, international aid, debt relief and climate change.
