“We are investing all our resources in that fight. But that doesn’t mean every dollar spent on development has maximum impact. And that must be our goal.”
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has launched a report, and will continue doing so every year until 2030, to accelerate progress in the fight against poverty by helping to diagnose urgent problems, identify promising solutions, measure and interpret key results, and spread best practices.
This report tracks 18 data points included in the SDGs that it believes are fundamental to people’s health and well-being. To complement the data, the foundation is also telling the stories behind the numbers—about the leaders, innovations, and policies that have made the difference in countries where progress has been most significant.
