GOAL 6: COMBAT HIV/AIDS, MALARIA AND OTHER DISEASES
1. Halt and begin to reverse, by 2015, the spread of HIV/AIDS
2. Achieve, by 2010, universal access to treatment for HIV/AIDS for all those who need it
3. Halt and begin to reverse, by 2015, the incidence of malaria and other major diseases
* Every day over 7,400 people are infected with HIV and 5,500 die from AIDS- related illnesses. HIV remains the leading cause of death among reproductive-age women worldwide.
* An estimated 33.4 million people were living with HIV in 2008, two thirds of them in sub-Saharan Africa.
* Access to HIV treatment in low- and middle-income countries increased ten-fold over a span of just five years.
* Malaria kills a child in the world every 45 seconds. Close to 90 per cent of malaria deaths occur in Africa, where it accounts for a fifth of childhood mortality.
* 1.8 million people died from tuberculosis in 2008, about 500,000 of whom were HIV-positive.

GOAL 7: ENSURE ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
1. Integrate the principles of sustainable development into country policies and programmes and reverse the loss of
2. Reduce biodiversity loss, achieving, by 2010, a significant reduction in the rate of loss
3. Halve, by 2015, the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation
4. Achieve, by 2020, a significant improvement in the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers
* Some 1.7 billion people have gained access to safe drinking water since 1990. Yet 884 million people worldwide still do not have access to safe drinking water and 2.6 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services, such as toilets or latrines.
* The world has missed the 2010 target for biodiversity conservation. Based on current trends, the loss of species will continue throughout this century.
* Slum improvements are failing to keep pace with the growing number of urban poor. The absolute number of slum dwellers keeps rising, with some 828 million people living in slums today, even though the share of the urban population living in slums is declining.

GOAL 8: DEVELOP A GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP FOR DEVELOPMENT
1. Develop further an open, rule-based, predictable, non-discriminatory trading and financial system
2. Address the special needs of least developed countries, landlocked countries and small island developing states
3. Deal comprehensively with developing countries’ debt
4. In cooperation with pharmaceutical companies, provide access to affordable, essential drugs in developing countries
5. In cooperation with the private sector, make available benefits of new technologies, especially ICTs
* Official development assistance stands at 0.31 per cent of the combined national income of developed countries, still far
short of the 0.7 per cent UN target. Only five donor countries have reached or exceeded the target.
* Debt burdens have eased for developing countries and remain well below historical levels.
* Only 1 in 6 people in the developing world has access to the Internet.
