Millennium development goals for 2015 in pakistan

  1. 1. Millennium Development Goals for 2015 in Pakistan Where we are and where we need to be!
  2. 2. MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are eight international development goals that were established following the Millennium Summit of the United Nations in 2000, following the adoption of the United Nations Millennium Declaration. All 189 United Nations member states at the time (there are 193 currently) and at least 23 international organizations committed to help achieve the following Millennium Development Goals by 2015
  3. 3. 8 MDGs to be achieved by 2015
  4. 4. MDGs In Pakistan •Pakistan has adopted 16 targets and 41 indicators against which progress towards achieving the Eight Goals of the MDG’s is measured. • It reveals that Pakistan is on track to achieve the targets on 9 indicators, whereas its progress on 24 indicators is off track.
  5. 5. Punjab •Punjab, in lieu of its performance in most indicators, is far head in achieving MDGs as compared to other provinces. •The prevalence of underweight children below 5 and proportion of population below minimum level of dietary consumption. •Targets for the net primary enrolment ratio and literacy rate are unlikely to be achieved. •Targets related to mortality rates, immunization against measles and lady health workers’ coverage of target population are likely not to be achieved. •Targets for the maternal mortality ratio, proportion of births attended by skilled birth attendants, contraceptive prevalence rate and total fertility rate are unlikely to be met.
  6. 6. Sindh •In general, at the current rate of progress, no MDG will be achieved in entirety in Sindh. •The floods of 2011 and the declining national economic and security situation post 2007 threaten to reverse the progress that has been made. Performance is not only considerably behind the targets but also the national average in all indicators the prevalence of underweight children. •the net primary enrolment ratio, completion/survival rate and literacy rate, despite the latter being higher than the national average. •The maternal mortality ratio, births attended by skilled birth attendants, contraceptive prevalence rate, total fertility rate and antenatal coverage reported for Sindh fall considerably short of those required for attaining the targets. •Sindh is likely to be unable to meet the target for the proportion of population with access to sanitation.
  7. 7. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa •Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province has made significant progress reflected in its achievement of targets for indicators of forest cover and land area protected for the conservation of wildlife. •Progress in other MDG areas, however has suffered in part owing to the unprecedented natural as well as manmade calamities which have afflicted the province. •GDP for primary education and youth literacy, share of women in wage employment and proportion of seats held by women in national parliament with targets below national averages. •Indicators of infant mortality, immunization of children, immunization of children against measles and lady health worker’s coverage. •KP’s progress also falls short of other provinces in the proportion of population with sustainable access to a safe improved water source owing to large urban rural discrepancies.
  8. 8. Balochistan •Balochistan is the worst performing province in most if not all areas of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Balochistan’s performance while completely off track, is especially of grave concern in health and education related indicators. 43% of children are underweight in Balochistan against a target of 20%, reflecting a severe lag in performance. Net primary enrolment ratio, completion/survival rate and literacy rate performance is lower than the national average and considerably behind the targets. •Child mortality with a staggeringly high infant mortality rate by national standards. There are 785 deaths per hundred thousand live births, the maternal mortality ratio deserves immediate attention.
  9. 9. NGOs working in Pakistan PAKISTAN POVERTY ALLEVIATION FUND (PPAF) This NGO is mainly focusing to accomplish MDG 1. Their goal is to alleviate poverty through empowering poor people and increasing their access to income and opportunities, ensuring a focus on the most vulnerable and marginalized groups. They provide funds in the form of grants and loans to organizations working towards their goal. WORK DONE BY PPAF FOR SPECIFIC MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS MDG1- At-least 60 percent of targeted poor and 50 percent of ultra poor graduated to higher scores on the poverty scorecard MDG3- 1. Increased percentage of women own assets and resources on their name 2.Participation of women household decisions MDG2- 90% of boys and girls of primary school age within the targeted village completed primary schooling. MDG5- A 50% reduction in maternal mortality rates within the targeted population. MDG4- Reduce by 50% the under-five mortality rates in the targeted communities. children who were severely malnourished were targeted. Achieved Immunization rates close to 100% in all the PPAF targeted communities.
  10. 10. UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IN PAKISTAN In 2002, the government of Pakistan became one of the first countries in the world to establish a national public-private partnership devoted to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). UNDP partners with the Pakistan Human Development Fund and the National Commission for Human Development (NCHD), the implementing agency working on the ground in 53 districts across Pakistan, in the following areas: Education: To ensure that children everywhere receive primary education by 2015, NCHD has launched the Universal Primary Education Program, establishing community-based feeder schools to accommodate children unable to access government schools; Health care: To improve health-care services, particularly for maternal and child welfare, the Primary Health Care Extension Program trains local health-care workers and educates community members; and Civil Society: To engage Pakistanis in human development at the grassroots level, the Volunteerism Program harnesses the potential of individuals to contribute to development in their own community.
  11. 11. What more can be done? •Booklet for distribution to Government and other stakeholders containing awareness raising materials based on the TV programs and encouraging all sectors to internalize that MDGs and make them our own. •Identification of areas where NGOs are not working or could work better so projects and programs can be developed to fill these gaps, meet and exceed the Millennium Development Goals.
