Did MDGs Work?

To move forward with new development goals, the global health community must assess whether or not previous Millennium Development Goals made a difference. A new Brookings study by researchers John McArthur and Krista Rasmussen says the outcomes of the MDGs have been mixed.
At least 21 million lives were saved between 2000 and 2015, 66% of them in sub-Saharan Africa. But the slowdown of progress in populous countries outweighed the impacts of improved access to drinking water and decreased rates of extreme poverty.
The authors argue that global leaders need to determine what worked and what didn’t before charging ahead toward 2030.
