The overview has four parts; the first describes why the Millennium Development Goals are important and the varied progress so far in achieving them. The second presents the recommendations to be implemented at the country level, focusing on the processes, investments, policies, and scale-up strategies required to achieve the Goals. The third provides recommendations to guide the international system's support for country level processes. The fourth estimates the costs and benefits of achieving the Goals, outlining the millions of lives that could be saved and the billions of lives improved through a very affordable but substantial increase in worldwide investments.
