Only 1000 days left to reach the Millenium Development Goals
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are the most successful global anti-poverty push in history. Governments, international organizations and civil society groups around the world have helped to cut in half the world’s extreme poverty rate. More girls are in school. Fewer children are dying. The world continues to fight killer diseases, such as malaria, tuberculosis and AIDS. But the clock is ticking: There are 1,000 days to accelerate action on issues such as hunger, access to education, improved sanitation, maternal health and gender equality. On 5 April, the UN and partners worldwide observed the 1,000-day mark to the 2015 target date for the MDGs. Get involved and help build more #MDGmomentum!
