– Does (and if so, how much) the international community have a responsibility to help Africans with challenges such as diseases (HIV/AIDS, Malaria, etc.), poverty, inequitable land distribution, ethnic and religious conflict, debt, etc.? If so, please give some specific examples of what should and can be done.
