What is MDG 5?
In 2000, 189 countries committed to ending extreme poverty worldwide through the achievement of the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). MDG 5—to improve maternal health—set a target of reducing maternal mortality by three-fourths by 2015 (Target 5.A).
In 2007, the world’s leaders added a second target under MDG 5—to achieve universal access to reproductive health (Target 5.B). Unfortunately, of all the MDGs, MDG 5 has made the least progress. With increased awareness, leadership, policy and funding, this can change. Learn more about MDG 5.
