This document identifies areas where gender considerations may have a bearing on work towards the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) (numbers 1, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8). The MDGs acknowledge that gender can have a major impact on development, helping to promote it in some cases while seriously retarding it in others. MDG number 3 is, in fact, specifically about gender equality (and women's empowerment), calling for an end to disparities between boys and girls at all levels of education.
