Ten years ago, global leaders set forth eight bold goals for the new millennium. From the outset, it was clear that meeting the Millennium Development Goals by 2015 would be no small challenge. The work is difficult, and progress can be challenging to measure.
In September, 2010, global leaders met in New York to mark the tenth anniversary of the MDGs. They evaluated what has worked well and what hasn’t, and developed action plans to help speed our progress against the goals.
At TEDxChange, we invited the global community to join us in celebrating all that has been accomplished in this remarkable decade for health and development, and imagine an even more remarkable future we can make together.
