Working for Our Future: Fighting Disease

In 2000, the UN announced the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), 8 targets to reduce poverty and suffering. Government leaders around the world signed up these in order to improve life for billions of people by 2015. Based on six of the UN Millennium Development Goals, this clear reference series looks at some of the biggest challenges the world currently faces. Each book uses personal quotes, photos and stories to bring the issues to life, exploring how close we are to achieving the Goals, and what more needs to be done.
