2008 Bhutan’s Progress: Midway to the MDGs
The Report reveals that Bhutan has made tremendous progress in achieving MDGs by 2008 and is steadily progressing to meet all the targets by 2015. A number of targets such as reducing malnutrition among children and halving those without access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation facilities have already been realised. Further, as a result of successful interventions of the Royal Government, reaching the target of reducing the proportion of people living below the poverty line by half is not far away. The report also reveals that diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis have been successfully controlled.
