Five Strategies To Achieve MDGs From Health Worker’s Perspective

“To close the gap and successfully achieve the [Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)], I believe that Jamaica should embrace some applicable strategies outlined in the 2012 Women Deliver Report on Regional Consultations,” Victoria Melhado, a nurse living in Jamaica, writes in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog. She outlines five suggested strategies, including the integration of health services, a greater focus on “increasing access and diversity in family planning services,” youth engagement, strong partnerships and adequate funding, and greater political will. She concludes, “We must remain united as we close the gap to achieving our goals with our Jamaican people and with the global community” (10/30).
