Essential services, such as healthcare and education are basic fundamental rights at the heart of the Millennium Development Goals and are critical for ending poverty and gender inequality.

Today, 72 million children, most of them girls, will not go to school. 1,000 women will die needlessly in childbirth pregnancy. 4,000 children will be killed by diarrhea, a disease of dirty water.

The poorest people have less access to health, education and other services. Problems of hunger, malnutrition and disease afflict them most in the society. The poorest are also typically marginalized from society and have little representation or voice in public and political debates, making it even harder to escape poverty.
