Progress in the Sustainable Development Goals(trT)

Global progress in achieving Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)(trT)

Rwanda met most of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) due in part to strong economic growth (22). This growth stemmed substantial improvements in living standards such as a two-thirds reduction in child mortality and the attainment of near-universal primary school enrolment (22). A strong focus on home-grown policies and initiatives also contributed to a significant improvement in access to services and in human development indicators. In addition, the poverty rate dropped from 44% in 2011 to 39% in 2014 (22).
