oa South African Health Review - Health and related indicators : indicators
The South African Health Review (SAHR) 2010 focuses on the degree to which the South African health system is contributing to local achievement of the eight sets of global economic and social development priorities set at the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000. These goals - referred to as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) - have galvanised action worldwide and have increased pressure on United Nations member states to ensure that they can demonstrate progress towards, if not achieve, the targets set by 2015. Like all UN member states, South Africa submitted an official 3rd interim progress report on progress towards achieving the MDGs in time for the UN summit held in New York from 20-22 September 2010 [MDG SA 2010]. There are only 5 years left, so any country that has not achieved significant improvements in the MDG indicators by 2010 will not be expected to meet the targets set for 2015.
