40 cents and the MDG’s

The UN Millenium Development Goals Summit has kicked off in New York.
Making Health Global has some good coverage…you can like them on facebook.

This is a three-day summit in New York to review the progress being made towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

My heart is really in Latin America..and there’s a little good news there at least, they are on track to meet Goal One – halving extreme poverty by 2015. According to the MDG report, Brazil and Chile have already achieved this goal according to the MDG report and Peru is coming close.

Will be very interesting to see what comes from the summit. Hopefully some new momentum, fresh energy and increased aid commitments.
