African Countries Make Progress Toward MDGs, But Will Not Reach All Goals, Deutsche Welle Reports

Deutsche Welle examines African countries’ progress on reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the 2015 deadline, writing, “Even though Africa will most likely not meet all eight [MDGs] by 2015, the continent has shown remarkable progress. But Africa still lags when it comes to targets like eradicating poverty.” The news agency reviews progress on reaching goals surrounding education, health, poverty and hunger. “Fifteen African countries are among the top 20 nations which have made the greatest progress toward reaching the MDGs,” the news agency writes (Steffan, 6/13).
