2021 Goal Keepers Report
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has published the 2021 Goalkeepers Report which focuses on the ongoing impact of COVID-19 in Sub-Saharan Africa. ” We feared it was triggering an unprecedented reversal of progress across nearly every measure of health and prosperity that we track each year in this report.”
SDG Target 3.3
End the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and neglected tropical diseases. The global data for 2020 was 31 new cases of malaria per 1,000 people, with a 2030 projection of 32 new cases per 1,000 people.
“Under the most difficult circumstances imaginable, we’ve witnessed breathtaking innovation. We’ve seen how quickly we can change our behavior, as individuals and as societies, when circumstances require it.
And today, we can also report that people in every part of the world have been stepping up to protect the development progress we’ve made over decades—when it comes to the SDGs, at least, the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic could have been far worse.”
