We record with great sadness the death of Kofi Annan on Saturday 18 August 2018. We lost him, but his voice will live on.

We remain inspired by his lifelong work to promote and protect human rights in the world and are committed to ensuring that his vision lives on. As he noted in June, “A time to redouble our efforts!”
