On December 31st, 2006, Stephen Lewis's tenure as UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa came to an end. For five and a half years, he crisscrossed Africa and the world at breakneck speed. His crammed schedule has included endless speeches and high-level meetings with presidents, UN officials and anyone who will listen to his impassioned plea for Africa. Possessing an intricate knowledge of the continent, he's made countless visits to grassroots projects: they give him hope but also disturb him most deeply because the spectre of death is still everywhere. Each death haunts him. He rarely sleeps on these epics journeys? in fact it's not clear when this driven humanitarian gets any rest at all.
