Race Against Time : Searching for hope in AIDS-ravaged Africa
THE 2005 MASSEY LECTURES
In 2000, the United Nations established eight Millennium Development Goals Ã�Â¢Ã�Â�Ã�Â� a series of targets which include halving extreme poverty, halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education Ã�Â¢Ã�Â�Ã�Â� agreed to by the world's countries and leading development institutions and to be met by 2015. In Race Against Time, Lewis turns his attention to the devastating impacts of AIDS and hunger in Africa and yet he provides real hope in suggesting simple and pragmatic means in which to implement the Millenium goals and thereby overcome the seemingly insurmountable problems that afflict this rich and ancient continent.
