International Day for the Eradication of #Poverty: we are not on track to reach #SDG1 to #EndPoverty by 2030. Extreme poverty decreased slowly to 736 million people in 2015, 10.0% of the world population.

Today is #WorldFoodDay: The number of #undernourished people increased to 821 million in 2017, representing 11% of the world population. This trend goes against #SDG2 target to #EndHunger by 2030.

In their new special report, the #IPCC warns that #GlobalWarming is likely to reach 1.5°C between 2030 and 2052 if temperature continues to increase at the current rate.

By ensuring a warming of 1.5 degrees compared with 2°C, the global mean #SeaLevel rise would be 10cm lower by 2100, which could mean 10 million fewer people exposed to the risks of rising seas.

With a 2°C warming, 37% of the world population will be exposed to a #HeatWave every five years. With 1.5 degrees this number could be decreased to 14%.

Limiting warming to 1.5°C will require annual average investments in the #energy system of around $2.4 trillion between 2018 and 2035. Making big emissions cuts will be costly in the short term but be cheaper than paying for #CarbonDioxide removal later this century.

The IPCC special report highlights that there would be higher economic #growth if global warming were limited to 1.5°C rather than 2°C.

It won't be good enough for governments to fulfill the pledges they made in the #ParisAgreement for 2030. They need to increase their ambitions and act more immediately. We already have all the #technology required to curb #ClimateChange. The time for action is now.

#InternationalLiteracyDay (Sept. 8): Global #literacy rate among people aged 15-24 increased to 91.4% in 2016. However, progress is clearly not fast enough to meet #SDG4 target 4.6 of universal literacy in this age group by 2030.

#WorldBreastfeedingWeek: Suboptimal #breastfeeding lead to 152,000 deaths in 2016. The death toll decreased by 45% since 2006, which is an improvement in the trend. #nutrition #breastmilk #hunger #SDG2 #SDGs #GlobalGoals #GBDstudy https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(17)32366-8/fulltext

#WorldHepatitisDay: The only major infectious diseases that killed more people in 2016 than in 2006 are #hepatitis B and C, with 1.31 million deaths in 2016 (acute and chronic). #EliminateHepatitis #NoHep #SDG3 #SDGs #GlobalGoals #GBDstudy https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(17)32152-9/fulltext

UNAIDS proudly dedicated its new report to the memory of Nelson #Mandela whose courage and compassion continues to inspire us 100 years after his birth.
The report indicates that the number of #AIDS-related deaths is the lowest this century, but the rate of decrease is not fast enough to meet the UNAIDS target of less than 500,000 AIDS-related deaths by 2020.
A record 21.7 million people living with #HIV are on #treatment. But the scale-up of access to treatment should not be taken for granted.

New #GlobalHealth Estimates by the @WHO:
* #Lower #respiratory #infections - mainly #pneumonia - are the biggest #infectious killer, having caused 2.96 million deaths in 2016. This was a decrease from 3.32 million deaths in 2000.
* #Neonatal conditions caused 2.24 million #newborn #deaths worldwide in 2016, many less than the 3.29 million in 2000.
* #Road #traffic #accidents claimed the lives of 1.40 million people in 2016, up from 1.14 million in 2000 (“road injuries”).
* #Diarrhoeal #diseases, largely due to #UnsafeWater and #sanitation, resulted in 1.38 million deaths in 2016, much less than the 2.25 million in 2000.
* Acute #hepatitis B and C and their resulting diseases lead to 1.33 million deaths in 2016. In 2000, this was only 1.03 million, making hepatitis the single major #infectious disease still #increasing.
* #Tuberculosis killed 1.29 million people in 2016, down from 1.68 million in 2000.
* #HIV/#AIDS claimed the lives of 1.01 million people in 2016, down from 1.47 million in 2000.
* #Nutritional deficiencies resulted in 453,000 deaths in 2016 (not including deaths due to related diseases). This is a decrease from 505.000 deaths in 2000.
* #Malaria caused 446.000 deaths in 2016, mainly among #children. The death toll was more severe in 2000, with 767.000 deaths.
* #Maternal conditions resulted in the death of 298.000 #women in 2016, much fewer than the 441.000 in 2000.
* #ArmedConflicts killed 184.000 people in 2016 (not including indirect impacts). This is an increase from 131.000 in 2000.
* #Measles claimed the lives of 91.000 people in 2016, mainly #children. Thanks to measles #vaccination, this was a good reduction compared to the death toll in 2000, which was 653,000.
