African Economic Forum: Practical Solutions to Daunting Challenges

The countries of Africa face a number of economic development challenges, particularly with regard to public health and HIV/AIDS. At Columbia's second annual African Economic Forum, Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute, and Stephen Lewis, special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, investigate the public health challenge and others, including the environment, education, investment and trade. Sachs and Lewis also offer practical solutions to some of these daunting problems.
