5 MAY 2009
5 MAY 2009 | THE LANCET - The world is off track to achieve the health-related targets of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015.
- maternal mortality has stagnated for two decades,
- child mortality is not declining fast enough,
- HIV/AIDS still infects people faster than the pace of antiretroviral treatment roll-out, and
- inequalities are widening within and across countries.
Addressing these crises will require increased funding and more efficient spending.
