In these final months leading to the 2015 Millennium Development Goal deadline, we find ourselves redoubling efforts to reach the UN targets set in September 2000. Over the past decade, these shared goals have galvanized the global community, across national boundaries and political agendas, to strive for certain universal targets – from dramatically reducing global poverty and improving equitable access to education to achieving substantial reductions in infant, child and maternal mortality. As of March 2015, these ambitions are further challenged by a global population that exceeds 7.2 billion, putting further pressure on efforts to reduce inequities. These challenges start at the very beginning of life (providing a clean and safe birth, attended by competent care-providers) through childhood (ensuring timely vaccination against major causes of death) into adolescence (providing education and access to adequate nutrition that prepares young men and women for a productive future). Into adulthood, these encompass access to employment, appropriate financial remuneration, competent and affordable healthcare, access to quality nutrition, and protection from disease.
