Into the countdown to 2015, what progress does the Asia and Pacific region register in meeting Millennium Development Goal (MDG)Target 10? What more is required? How will meeting MDG Target 10 advance countries toward achieving all eight MDGs?

This report offers answers to these questions. Prepared by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and World Health Organization (WHO), it uses the latest data available to measure each country's progress toward MDG Target 10 and analyzes whether it will be achieved. The results show a mixed picture. Some countries have already met the target; others are on track; others are likely to miss it in 2015. Some countries even show a decrease in coverage.
