MDG Progress Report 2015
Sep 23, 2015
'Millennium Development Goals: Bangladesh Progress Report 2015' is the eighth report monitoring the progress of MDGs in Bangladesh after 2005. The report shows that Bangladesh has registered remarkable progresses in the areas of poverty alleviation, ensuring food security, primary school enrolment, gender parity in primary and secondary level education, lowering the infant and under-five mortality rate and maternal mortality ratio, improving immunization coverage; and reducing the incidence of communicable diseases.
However, the attainments of a few targets of MDGs are associated with several challenges also. The existence of poverty pockets, prevalence of unemployment and underemployment among the youth, stunting and wasting among the under five children, reducing the dropout rate and enhancing the quality of education at the primary level, universal access to reproductive health and resource constraints are identified as stumbling blocks in fulfilling all the targets of MDGs in Bangladesh.
