Tauffiqu Ahamad, Hemlata, Ananta Narayana
Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 6 has two HIV/AIDS commitments: to have halted and begun to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS by 2015. These goals were developed in 2001 as a tool for focusing attention on and mobilizing resources for, development. Yet in the case of MDG 6 to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases significant treatment was already taking place around HIV/AIDS, and in this respect MDG 6 both reflected and supported an expanding infectious disease and broader health agenda. This paper begins with a discussion of one of the intellectual origins of MDG 6 that is the idea of health as development and then focuses on the subsequent prevention of HIV/AIDS, Malaria & Tuberculosis.
