The recent launch of the African Union in Durban (South Africa) was witnessed by a galaxy of African leaders all united in their vision of a future for Africa representative of the African Renaissance as conceptualised by Nelson Mandela. Thousands of miles away, in the land of the Rising Sun, the city of Yokohama witnessed the birth of another African child, con- ceived, carried and delivered by a group of men and women of similar commitment to the continent of Africa. What the Yokohama fête lacked in pomp and colour was more than made up for by the visible and at times palpable resolve. It was indeed an event representative of the triumph of hope over (bad) past experience. The relief of the launch was visible all round and was witnessed by leaders in psychiatry from all over the world
