|The Three Millennium Development Goals fund|
19 March 2012 - The aim of the Three Millennium Development Goals fund (3MDG) is to contribute to Myanmar’s efforts in achieving the three health related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of targets adopted by world leaders at the UN in 2000.
The three targets are: reduce the mortality rate among children under five, reduce maternal mortality rates, and halt and begin to reverse the spread of HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
The goal of the 3MDG fund is to contribute towards national progress towards the health MDGs through a rights-based approach. Progress depends on the actions of other stakeholders including the government of Myanmar, the Global Fund, the UN and international and national non-governmental organisations.
3MDG’s Fund Board has made available the final draft of the ‘Description of Action - Multi Donor 3MDG Fund 2012-2016’ for download.
Briefings with international and national NGOs, non-Fund donors are being planned and will be announced in due course.
More details on the MDGs can be found at the UN’s MDG site.
