    1000 days to MDGs deadline options for PH

    The countdown to the last 1,000 days to the 2015 deadline of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) has begun. On April 5, the world marked the beginning of the critical last mile of the MDGs.


    Launched in 2000 with the signing of the Millennium Declaration by 189 UN member-countries, the MDGs became the global agenda for development at the start of the new century. Being time-bound and measurable, the MDGs have made a difference and changed the way of achieving development objectives.


    The 8 MDGs are: the halving of extreme poverty and hunger, universal primary education, gender equality, reduction of child mortality, improved women's health, stoppage and reversal of the spread of TB, malaria and HIV/AIDS, environmental sustainability, and global partnerships for aid, trade and debt relief. The MDGs are measured against 18 targets and 60 indicators.


    Twelve years hence, the MDGs have shown successes in mobilizing the global community into achieving its targets. As of the 2012 Global MDGs Progress Report, 4 targets have been achieved. First, the global target of halving extreme poverty from its 1990 level has been reached, equivalent to 600 million people.

    Be the Change

    BE THE CHANGE is a new global public awareness campaign around citizen action and `civic space’.


    BE THE CHANGE seeks to inspire and celebrate citizen action and raise awareness about `civic space’, the importance of it and our need to protect it. The freedom to speak out (freedom of expression), to organise (freedom of association) and to take action (freedom of assembly) are all part of what is called `civic space’ and no one has the right to deny you these rights. Learn more about this exciting new campaign by visiting us at www.civicus.org/bethechange/
