The Lao PDR has already achieved or will achieve by the end of 2015 the MDG targets on poverty and hunger reduction. It has achieved universal access to primary education, and gender equity in primary education. Lao PDR has achieved the international MDG target of reducing its maternal mortality ratio by 75 percent and has achieved its own national target on reducing child mortality.
This Review summarizes the achievements and the lessons learnt from the MDG implementation process in Lao PDR, and reflects on strengths and areas in need of improvement. The Review aims to contribute to the dialogue on the post-2015 agenda in Lao PDR.
