I encourage all Nigerian youth to aim at making our dear and great nation to be ranked among the top 10 nations in the world in terms of wealth output,this ambition looks and sound lofty but with unity peace and progress nothing is impossible,plus the fact that we are ranked as one of the most God fearing people on earth,lets make the rule of law not only some written constitutional theory but the code of conduct by which we all live by.Nigeria has all the potentials of greatness including you my fellow Nigerian youth so lets strive to make the Nigeria of our dreams come to reality............GAB INA IKLAGA

I must say once we all agree on teh Goals i feel a country is responsiable not teh government they have a responisable how ever the populace can and are better positioned to response to their needs and take action for the development in general,

I feel their is a barrier to this since Human rights are not respected and hence people just leave up to their governments in other places Government surpassed community action and Leadership because of powder ,....

i think not only the government has the responsibility to achieve this... all of us has the responsibility to ensure that everyone is doing something to achieve the MDG's....... NGO,s have a role to play as well but even individuals. for instance i am very interested in the MDG8 of creating a global network for development... as much as possible i try to apply for fellowships, subcribe to networks, be invilved in forums that that people from different regions and countries of the world to know more and learn more from this global resource of different people. i have also made a committment to learn more about other cultures, other religions othar people who have different values and beliefs than mine..... i know alone i can not make the MDG8 be achieved but if more people do the little that i am doing.. we might be able to create a global network for developemt. so i believe all of us has the responsibility to implement the MDGs... we might not have the capacity, the expertise nor the forum to make a huge impact... but the least we can do... will definately means something....

Half the population of the developing countries lack basic sanitation. To achieve the Millennium Goals, between 2005 and 2015, 1.6 billion people who need regular access to sanitation has improved

Millennium Development Goals are something that has been discussed in my Global Nursing Class. For someone like myself who has been extremely uneducated on the governments plans I would like to discuss the approach as a future nurse. There are many things that I believe as individuals we can do to support these MDG's. Everyone plays a different role especially when we all have such different lifestyles and careers. However from a nurses perspective I believe that it is important to educate and have the nurses educating those who are uneducated on the subject. Networking and sharing ideas is often the best way to get a point across. We can also research and be our own advocates, understand these issues on a global issue not just focusing on whats in front of us. Through evidence based practice in a nursing perspective I believe that each individual can contribute but we have to be educated first. For those of us who have been unaware of the issue and the United Nations goals it is extremely difficult to contribute to something we do not understand.

Although nurses definitely have a role in helping developing countries reach Millennium Development goals, I still believe it is the government's overarching responsibility to make sure these goals are met. This is because the government has the ability to create healthy public policy, which would provide much-needed support to society’s social infrastructure. The creation of healthy public policy would also positively affect the social determinants of health, subsequently improving the health status of thousands of people. It is hard for individualistic efforts to make a difference when the overarching social infrastructure is set up to profit large corporations at the expense of the working poor population.

UN developed a shared vision and responsibility to achieve worldwide economic stability, social development, human dignity, and equity. I am currently researching Sierra-Leone who has been hard stricken by many disparities, warfare, and diseases. For Leoneans’ achieving MDGs does not solely rest in the hands of the government but requires all levels from; slum dwellers, health care workers, policy makers, up to global initiatives. Yes, it is the government’s job to make available and allocate resources in areas of concern but it is the health care workers duty to identify disparities and implement interventions to achieve the desired MDGs.

Although the government plays an important role in the passing and implementation of public policy that would lead us to achieve the millennium development goals, I believe it is also our duty as individuals to campaign and speak out for the necessary policies that will allow Canada to reach its millennium goals. As a future nurse in Canada I need to educate myself on the existing strategies and programs, evaluate their success to date and take action if they fall short on expectations. An example can be looking at the anti poverty strategies and programs set up to reduce poverty. Is the minimum wage enough to elevate poverty? Why are the Native Indians still living in such poverty? The government that is in power tend to pass policies that would benefit their economic supporters. As an individual we must take action and represent those without the power and voice. It is only then that public policy will change and goals be met.

As I future health care provider here in Canada, I think it is important for me to first be more aware of what it's millennium development goals and and what the countries needs are. By engaging in the latest news, statistics and strategies to meet the millennium development goals, I will then be able to participate in information sharing to both fellow health care providers and Canadians. . by engaging in the latest news, statistics and strategies to meet the millenium development goals, I will then be able to participate in information sharing to both fellow health care providers and Canadians.

Nurses have access to very diverse patients from various age groups, cultures, and socioeconomic statuses. In many cases we are the gateway to change for these populations, and must therefore be knowledgeable on what must be done to progress towards the achievement of these millennium goals. By educating one patient at a time, nurses can engage in thorough health and wellness advocacy as well as the importance of accessing vital services to support and empower persons within Canada.

In my opinion, no, it is not only the government’s responsibility to ensure/assist in achieving the Country’s millennium development goals. For instance, Goal #1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. These things exist right here in Canada, as well as in developing countries. In order to help achieve this goal here at home, you have to raise awareness. Volunteering your time, networking, fundraising, and opening up the eyes of others to this problem can go a long way. People cannot change what they are not aware of, so I feel this is important. Join your local shelter in serving meals, or go further and donate your time to speaking in your community and raising support to have the government increase the minimum wage. Every little bit helps, and one person can have a large impact.
