Agnes Binagwaho - Lancet Lecture

Dr Agnes Binagwaho delivers the 2013 Lancet Lecture


The 2013 Lancet Lecture was delivered by Rwanda's Minister for Health, Dr Agnes Binagwaho. In a provocative lecture she asked why 50 years of aid to Africa has not borne fruit, and argued that public-private partnerships are the way forward. Quoting Martin Luther Kind, she said that "true compassion means more than flinging a coin to a beggar," and called for more ambition to realise Africa's potential. The millennium development goals are "not the ceiling, they are the floor," for development.
