UN set to change the world with new development goalsThe Lancet The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has been prepared over the last three years. These goals are set to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Are the SDGs able to overcome the unfinished business of the MDGs? UN has developed these very ambitious 17 goals in order to "free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and [will] heal and secure our planet for present and future generations”. Many observers are satisfied especially that with SDG 3 health has been given a central role. Nevertheless there are also voices of concern. (Photo: David Cameron speaks at UNGA 2015 © flickr)
