[Comment] From MDG to SDG: good news for global child health?

In the last months of 2015, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), introduced in 1990, will be declared at an end, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), running to 2030, will be launched.1 The reduced representation of health, from three of eight MDGs to one of 17 SDGs, has been met with disappointment by the global health community. However, we suggest that the SDGs offer substantial, and possibly strengthened, opportunities to improve child health worldwide and in the UK.
