Progress is behind schedule for almost all of the Millennium Development
Goals. Failure to achieve the goals will have tragic consequences for
children, particularly those in developing countries: Millions will see
their childhood violated through ill health or death from preventable
disesases; millions more will see their futures compromised because of
governments' failures to provide them with an education; and the number of
children orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS will continue to rise.
