Posted in CIGH In the News

On the eve of the December 2022 U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, CIGH director Dr. Charles Holmes and Ambassador Mark Storella—former U.S. Ambassador to Zambia—penned an op-ed in Think Global Health discussing the mutual benefits of fostering strong relationships between the U.S. and African nations, like Zambia. A recent peaceful transition of power in Zambia has paved the way for governance, economic and health gains within the country, and created space for strengthened partnerships with the U.S. The U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, attended by 46 heads of state, served as a prime opportunity for the U.S. to strengthen its relationships with African leaders.
