The latest progress report on the MDG’s in Africa shows that despite good progress, the continent still has the greatest burden of child and maternal deaths. It also says that while tuberculosis and malaria remain serious health threats, Africa as a whole has halted the spread of both. The findings of this year’s report confirm that steady economic growth and improvements in poverty reduction on the continent continue to have a positive impact on MDG progress.
