Millennium Development Goals were a set of eight goals that all 191 United Nations member states have agreed to try to realize by the year 2015. These eight goals are the following:
The Eight Millennium Development Goals are:to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger; to achieve universal primary education; to promote gender equality and empower women; to reduce child mortality; to improve maternal health; to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases; to ensure environmental sustainability; and to develop a global partnership for development.
Under # 2, the Philippine government beleives that men and women who are educated would be able to seek medical help when needed, will be more aware of health issues as well. As such the children of these parent are likely to be better members of the society by seeking employment and sustain personal and family needs
It is now 2019, four years after the goals were supposed to have been achieved but in the Philippines many of the goals had not been achieved yet. This year especially, the rise in HIV cases and other diseases such as polio is quite alarming. Citizen should do their part by ensuring they are vaccinated.
