Universal Primary Education

At A Glance
Last Edited: 1604 days ago.

Education is a basic human right and should be made available to everyone, yet 75 million children throughout the world still do not attend primary school, and almost half of them have never received any  education at all.

The children most likely to drop out of school or to not attend at all are often girls, especially those from poorer households or living in rural areas.

This situation is all the more worrying as it has a negative impact on the other Millenium Development Goals. For instance, education has a positive effect on the success of HIV prevention and increases the probability of accessing decent employment.
