Goal 1: Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger

Target 1:

The target of reducing extreme poverty rates by half was met five years ahead of the 2015 deadline. The global poverty rate at $1.25 a day fell in 2010 to less than half the 1990 rate. 700 million fewer people lived in conditions of extreme poverty in 2010 than in 1990. However, at the global level 1.2 billion people are still living in extreme poverty.

Target 2:

The hunger reduction target should be almost met by 2015. Globally, about 842 million people are estimated to be undernourished. More than 99 million children under age five are still undernourished and underweight

Goal 3: Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women

Target 4;

The world has achieved equality in primary education between girls and boys, but few countries have achieved that target at all levels of education. The political participation of women keeps increasing. In January 2014, in 46 countries more than 30 per cent of members of parliament in at least one chamber were women. In many countries, gender inequality persists and women continue to face discrimination in access to education, work and economic assets, and participation in government. For example, in every developing region, women tend to hold less secure jobs than men, with fewer social benefits. Violence against women continues to undermine efforts to reach all goals. Poverty is a major barrier to secondary education, especially among older girls. Women are largely relegated to more vulnerable forms of employment

Goal 6: Combat HIV/AIDS. Malaria and OTHER diseases

Target 7

New HIV infections continue to decline in most regions. The number of new HIV infections per 100 adults (aged 15 to 49) declined by 44 per cent between 2001 and 2012. An estimated 2.3 million cases of people of all ages are newly infected and 1.6 million people died from AID-related causes. Comprehensive knowledge of HIV transmission remains low among young people, along with condom use. About 210,000 children died of AIDS-related causes in 2012, compared to 320,000 in 2005.

Target 8

Between 2000 and 2012, the substantial expansion of malaria interventions led to a 42 per cent decline in malaria mortality rates globally. In the decade since 2000, 3.3 million deaths from malaria were averted, and the lives of three million young children were saved. Thanks to increased funding, more children are sleeping under insecticide-treated bed nets in sub-Saharan Africa. Treatment for tuberculosis has saved some 22 million lives between 1995 and
