Statement by UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem on the passing of former Secretary-General Kofi Annan

New York - I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Kofi Annan, who throughout his exemplary career worked tirelessly for a more just and peaceful world, based on our shared humanity and fundamental values rooted in universal human rights. 

He promoted dialogue and celebrated diversity – of thought, belief and action. He inspired young people around the world and championed their leadership.
