Kofi Annan was the UN Secretary-General from 1997-2006. He replaced the
Boutros Boutros-Ghali of Egypt and becoming the first person from a black
African nation to become Secretary-General.
Annan's Secretary-Generalship was renewed on January 1, 2002, an unusual deviation from informal policy. The office usually rotates around the continents, with two terms each; since Annan's predecessor Ghali was also an African (he was Egyptian), normally Annan would have only served one term. However, in this case Annan was able to secure reappointment. In April 2001, Annan issued a five-point "Call to Action" to address the HIV/AIDS pandemic, which he sees as his personal priority. On December 10, 2001, Annan and the United Nations jointly received the Nobel Peace Prize "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world." Autographed color photo 4" by 5 ½". Excellent condition.
