The world needs free public health care and education. Millions of people don’t know what is primary education and health services. 80 million children can’t go to school. 1,400 women die needlessly in childbirth every day. G8 (USD, Canada, UK, Italy, France, Germany, Russia and Japan countries made an agreement over 35 years ago to devote 0.7% of GNI in aid to alleviate poverty in the world’s poorest countries.
These commitments intend to support the poor and developing countries on the public accountability, justice governance, protecting the human rights. As well as increase the quality and quantity of aid, relief of debt and encourage the local governments to develop own independent national economic policy. This will be resulted in improving living conditions of population in the poorest countries and save millions of lives, put every child into school, employ millions of teachers and health workers, and ensure that everyone with HIV/AIDS has access to the treatment.
These promises will be kept and exceeded if the G8, and other rich nations fulfil their obligation to the poor of the world. Promises given by the G8 and rich countries should be kept!!!
