Malawi MDG Report 201001 Jan 2011
The 2010 Millennium Development Goals report provides an update with respect to achievements Malawi has made on the attainment of the MDGs. The assessment has clearly shown that the country is on track to attaining some of the MDG targets by the year 2015.
This assessment on progress achieved in attaining the eight MDGs shows positive results. Five of the goals are likely to be achieved, and the other three are in doubt not for lack of effort to achieve them but due to the fact that the country had a much lower starting base compared to other countries. The five MDG targets that are likely to be achieved are on eradicating extreme poverty, reducing infant mortality, combating HIV and AIDS, malaria and other diseases, ensuring environmental sustainability, and developing global partnership for development. The three that are in doubt are on achieving universal primary education, reducing gender inequality and maternal mortality.
This report has also highlighted challenges that are being faced in the course of implementing relevant development policies to attain MDG targets and possible solutions to resolve them.
