MDG’s: Isolating and Understanding its Health Component (4, 5 & 6) for Successful Action and Sustainability in Nigeria

Albert. T. Akume

Abstract


The MDGs agenda is aimed at redirecting the focus of government of developing societies to area-specific (social dimension) of human development for proper intervention so as to effectively confront and eliminate those conditions that undermine human capacity to express and utilize their potentials for better living. With just few years to the target year of 2015 Nigeria’s performance towards the achievement of the MDG health targets remains an issue for concern, given that health and health related issues are important to human, economic and national development. This is premised on the fact that health influences economic growth by drastically reducing production loss from man-hour losses due to poor health condition. It is against this backdrop that this paper using the documentary method examines the core issues relating to its challenge, success and sustainability of the MDG health components in Nigeria.
