Sustainable Development Goals

On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end povertyprotect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you. Do you want to get involved? You can start by telling everyone about them. We’ve also put together a list of actions that you can take in your everyday life to contribute to a sustainable future.

Till 2015: Millenium Development Goals

By improving the further education of medical practitioners and midwives through mobile communications, HITA e.V. directly addresses several of the UN Millennium Development Goals, namely the reduction of child mortality rates, the improvement of maternal health and the combat of HIV/Aids, Malaria and other diseases. All member states of the United Nations have agreed to reach these goals by 2015. The donor countries are therefore obliged to support related endeavours within the scope of developmental cooperation.
