10 How Australia is addressing this issues
Australia has helped countries to make progress against the MDGs. In Papua New Guinea, more than 900,000 children were immunised against measles and other childhood illnesses between 2000 and In East Timor, Australian assistance contributed to a decrease in infant mortality from 60 per 1,000 live births in to 44 in In Indonesia, more than 2000 new junior secondary schools were built or renovated between 2006 and 2010, creating places for about 330,000 more children. In Zimbabwe, Kenya and Malawi Australian assistance has helped 8,473 households, or approximately 51,000 people, have access to clean water and sanitation following the installation of safe water points in communities.

11 How Australia is addressing this issues
Around the world hundreds of millions of people have been lifted out of poverty. Forty million more children are going to school, many of them girls. Life expectancy is improving. Three million more children are surviving beyond their fifth birthday, and there have been important steps in the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. However not all of the Millennium Development Goals are on track. There have been setbacks caused by factors such as the global recession, high food and fuel prices and natural disasters. Progress has also been uneven within and between countries.
