Improve Maternal Health

Cut the number of women who die around the time of childbirth

Millennium Development Goal 5

slide2

Somewhere in the world,

a mother dies every minute during childbirth.

Nearly all these women live in poor countriesand have little or no access to basic health care

slide3

Each year more than 500,000 women die from illness in pregnancy or childbirth - nearly all in poor countries

To look after these

mothers would

cost $12 billion

a year,

This is the same as what we spend on perfume each year in Europe and the United States of America !!!

slide4

Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases

Stop diseases like Malaria, HIV/AIDS, and Tuberculosis, from spreading unnecessarily.

Millennium Development Goal 6

malaria causes more than 300 million serious illnesses and at least 1 million deaths every year
Malaria causes more than 300 million serious illnesses and at least 1 million deaths every year.

Malaria kills an African

child every 30 seconds

It only costs £5 to provide a child with a bed net to protect them from malaria –

This is less than the cost of ………

slide6

11 million children in Africa have lost at least one parent to HIV/AIDS

Over 37.8 million people have the HIV virus. Over 20 million have already died

In countries with

high rates of HIV,

most people will

only live till they

are 30 years old.

6 people die every minute

When people have good food, medicine, and support, they can live healthy lives …… even if they have HIV

slide7

Ensure Environment Sustainability

Halve the number of people with no clean water,

improve the lives of people who live in slums

and respect the environment.

Millennium Development Goal 7

slide8

In rich countries we use 10 times as much

water as people in poorer countries

Climate change will make it even harder to find clean water.

4 children die every minute

because they only have

dirty water to drink.

slide13

There are an estimated 1 billion people living in slums worldwide

The UN think this figure will double by 2030 !

Many slum dwellers have

no access to clean water

or sanitation facilities –

Leading to more disease

and poverty !!

slide14

Develop a Global Partnership for Development

All countries should work together and share new technologies. Making things fairer for poorer countries -

in trade, aid and debt.

Millennium Development Goal 8

slide15

“Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.”Nelson Mandela

slide17

To give everyone in the world decent food and health care would cost $13 billion a year-Europe and the US spend $17 billion a year on pet food !!
