(p.67) 3 The Millennium Development Goals and Sustainable Development Goals
An Introduction to Global Health Delivery

Joia S. Mukherjee

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the international goals to improve health and well-being around the world: the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), launched in 2000, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) launched in 2016. The chapter discusses how the MDG framework, which coincided with the movement for HIV treatment access, set new and aspiration targets for improving access to infectious disease treatment, maternal mortality, and child health. The Goals highlighted the need for health systems strengthening to achieve the health improvements promised. The chapter also explains how monies for disease-specific or vertical programs can fragment health systems or, alternatively, can be leveraged to strengthen health care delivery. In 2015, the SDGs were launched with an even broader and more aspirational scope with the explicit goal of achieving Universal Health Coverage by 2030.

Keywords:   Millennium Development Goals, Sustainable Development Goals, child health, women’s health, infectious disease, health system strengthening
