    Achieving Millennium Development Goal 4 through Decent Work

    01 May 2010

    Despite progress in some regions, child mortality rates remain intolerably high in poor countries and among the poorest families. Most of these deaths can be prevented. Improving child protecti on and the status of women is key to achieving Millennium Development Goal 4 (MDG4). The International Labour Organization supports efforts to reach MDG 4 with a focus on working mothers, health-care workers, combating child labour and extending social protection.

    Achieving Millennium Development Goal 5 through Decent Work

    01 May 2010

    For the first time in decades, encouraging progress has been made towards Millennium Development Goal 5 (MDG 5), with global maternal mortality rates having fallen by nearly 35 per cent. However, among low-income countries with longstanding high maternal death rates, progress varied considerably and only 23 countries are on track to achieve a 75 per cent decrease in maternal deaths by 2015. Stronger commitments and better cooperation between UN agencies, governments and other development partners are needed to broadly achieve MDG 5.
