Night falls at the UN

Superbadger is sitting in a café opposite the UN. It’s getting dark, Obama’s motorcade roared past when he left the UN building an hour ago and things are wrapping up at the MDG Summit.

So, after three days we saw lots of positive words but little concrete commitment. A strategy from the UN Secretary-General to get the child and maternal health targets back on track is welcome. However, we needed to see a roadmap like this for the whole MDGs, not just some. As ever, Superbadger will bank what we got and keep on badgering for the many things that we didn’t.

Let’s keep holding world leaders to account for what they promised here and keep pushing for more.

The race for the MDGs is still on: 10 years down, 5 to go.

It’s totally doable, let’s keep the pressure up. Bring it on!
