 Goal 4. Reduce child mortality

 Goal 5. Improve maternal health

 Goal 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases

 Goal 8: Develop a global partnership for development

This includes tariff- and quota-free access for their exports; enhanced debt relief for heavily indebted poor countries; cancellation of official bilateral debt; and more generous official development assistance for countries committed to poverty reduction

Address the special needs of landlocked and small island developing States

Deal comprehensively with developing countries’ debt problems through national and international measures to make debt sustainable in the long term

In cooperation with the developing countries, develop decent and productive work for youth

In cooperation with pharmaceutical companies, provide access to affordable essential drugs in developing countries

In cooperation with the private sector, make available the benefits of new technologies—especially information and communications technologies.

 TWO – Increasing Awareness

 88% of Europeans don’t know about the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDG)

yet 91% say International Development is the most important issue. To overcome this, we will be using the  universal language of music – with a difference. Music to Unite Nations, a concert at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 16 October is unique. Artists from different continents and cultures will perform without fee to promote the MDGs. The concert will be televised and the DVD will include a guide to the MDGs with narration in several languages for worldwide listening.

 Naked Leader readers can visit our website to see more details.

 Why not join us at the Royal Albert Hall? Share in the music and hear how it

gets the message across. Millions depend on us so, together, let’s make it
