The World Has Set Goals for Children

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.
