From MDGs to Sustainable Development For All: Lessons from 15 Years of Practice.
The quest of the last 15 years to achieve eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) demonstrates the power of Global Goals to realize progressive change. The MDGs succeeded, in part, by tapping a widely held conviction that progress everywhere – particularly among the impoverished. This Report strives to illuminates how in practice, the SDGs can best be applied to this end. It draws from the lessons in over 50 recent National MDG Reports. We encourage practitioners, advocates and leaders, in all walks of life, to use this Report to identify and apply lessons from MDG practice, suited to their context

Get on the Fast-Track — The life-cycle approach to HIV.
In this report, UNAIDS is announcing that 18.2 million people now have access to HIV treatment. The Fast-Track response is working. Increasing treatment coverage is reducing AIDS-related deaths among adults and children. But the life-cycle approach has to include more than just treatment. Tuberculosis (TB) remains among the commonest causes of illness and death among people living with HIV of all ages, causing about one third of AIDS-related deaths in 2015. These deaths could and should have been prevented.
