GOAL 3 Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women
1. Eliminate gender disparity in primary and secondary education, preferably by 2005, and in all levels of education, no later than 2015
* In 2008, there were 96 girls for every 100 boys enrolled in primary school, and 95 girls for every 100 boys in secondary school in developing regions.
• The share of women employed outside of agriculture remains as low as 20 per cent in Southern Asia, Western Asia and Northern Africa.
• The global share of women in parliament continues to rise slowly and reached 19 per cent in 2010 — far short of gender parity.
3.1 Ratios of girls to boys in primary, secondary and tertiary education
3.2 Share of women in wage employment in the non-agricultural sector
3.3 Proportion of seats held by women in national parliament
GOAL 4: Reduce Child Mortality
1. Reduce by two thirds, between 1990 and 2015, the mortality rate of children under five
* The number of children in developing countries who died before they reached the age of five dropped from 100 to 72 deaths per 1,000 live births between 1990 and 2008.
* Almost nine million children still die each year before they reach their fifth birthday.
* The highest rates of child mortality continue to be found in sub-Saharan Africa, where, in 2008, one in seven children died before their fifth birthday.
* Of the 67 countries defined as having high child mortality rates, only 10 are currently on track to meet the MDG target.

4.2 Infant mortality rate
4.3 Proportion of 1 year-old children immunized against measles
GOAL 5: IMPROVE MATERNAL HEALTH
1. Reduce by three quarters, between 1990 and 2015, the maternal mortality ratio
2. Achieve, by 2015, universal access to reproductive health
* More than 350,000 women die annually from complications during pregnancy or childbirth, almost all of them —
99 per cent — in developing countries.
• The maternal mortality rate is declining only slowly, even though the vast majority of deaths are avoidable.
• In sub-Saharan Africa, a woman’s maternal mortality risk is 1 in 30, compared to 1 in 5,600 in developed regions.
• Every year, more than 1 million children are left motherless. Children who have lost their mothers are up to 10 times more
likely to die prematurely than those who have not
