Sharp decline in child mortality 18.9.2014 Deccan Herald - Opinion
The United Nations has reported significant declines in the rates of child mortality and hunger, but said those two scourges of the developing world stubbornly persist in parts of Africa and South Asia despite major health care advances and sharply higher global food production. The trends, detailed in two annual reports by United Nations agencies, were presented before the General Assembly meetings of world leaders, where the Millennium Development Goals, a United Nations list of aspirations to meet the needs of the world's poorest, are an important discussion theme. While one of those goals — halving the number of hungry people by 2015 — seems within reach, the goal of reducing child mortality by two-thirds is years behind, the reports showed. The child mortality report, a collaboration of Unicef, other United Nations agencies and the World Bank, showed that the mortality rate for children younger than 5, the most vulnerable age group, had dropped by nearly half between 1990 and 2013. ...

100m people saved from hunger in last decade: UN 17.9.2014 Asian Age: International
The number of hungry people in the world has dropped by 100 million over the last 10 years, though one in nine are still undernourished, with Asia home to the majority of the underfed, the UN said on Tuesday. The UN’s food agencies said the global number was down over 200 million since the early 1990s, but warned that despite the progress made, “about 805 million people in the world, or one in nine, suffer from hunger.” The Millennium Development Goal of halving the proportion of undernourished people by 2015 is within reach “if appropriate and immediate efforts are stepped up,” the Food and Agriculture Organisation, International Fund for Agricultural Development and World Food Programme said in a joint yearly report. To date, 63 developing countries have reached the target and six more are on track to reach it by 2015, they said. “This is proof that we can win the war against hunger and should inspire countries to move forward, with the assistance of the international community,” the agencies said in a ...
