From Aid to Innovation
Billions of dollars are spent around the world every year in aid, so how is this aid used to help people to better their own situations instead of relying on foreign governments to assist them? Many parts of Africa face challenges around issues such as health and HIV/AIDS, agriculture, food security, water, sanitation, and hygiene. In sub-Saharan Africa: an estimated 5% of the population is living with HIV/AIDS (68% of the world's total); malnutrition affects a third of the population; and sanitation coverage is only at about 36%. What solutions are available for developing countries and communities to implement systems that will allow them to care for themselves?

The World Affairs Council presents a conversation with Dr. Darius Mans, President of Africare, who will use South Africa as a case study to discuss the work being done to empower the local people to strengthen their own systems at the community and societal levels, allowing them to sustain these systems without outside assistance.
