It takes place half-way through the year that the African Union has dedicated to peace and security in Africa, and that coincides with many African nations celebrating their silver jubilee of independence. This is also a season when millions of Africans from more than a dozen states have already gone, or are about to go, to the polls to elect their leaders, mirroring Africans’ undiminished aspiration to democratic governance and the rule of law. The summit offers a unique opportunity for taking stock of the continent’s progress and challenges, both in maternal and child health and also in the broad areas of peace and security, good governance, and human rights.
