Abstract

Close to a decade ago the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) were developed and unanimously accepted by the General Assembly of the United Nations. The think tank behind the MDGs, the Earth Institute at Columbia University in New York led by the economist Jeffry Sachs,developed 8 overarching goals, which -if achieved- would liberate the world from poverty. Child Survival is the direct goal of MDG 4, and strongly and indirectly related to MDG 5 (reduction of maternal mortality), MDG 6 (combating HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria), and indirectly to MDG1-3.
