This is the second (revised) version of the national report on progress made by Kyrgyzstan towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. The publication analyses latest trends (2003-2008) in reducing poverty, improving maternal health, promoting gender equality, protection of environment and other goals.
The Millennium Declaration stated that by 2015, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), or at least the overwhelming majority of them, should have been reached. The midpoint in this period has already passed and the trends that existed at that point in time already gave a good indication of the possibility that these goals will be achieved. The first report on the progress in the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals was drafted by a group of national experts and published in 2003. (source: UNDP Kyrgyzstan)
The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – which range from halving extreme poverty to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education, all by the target date of 2015 – form a blueprint agreed to by all the world’s countries and all the world’s leading development institutions. They have galvanized unprecedented efforts to meet the needs of the world’s poorest. (source: the United Nations)
