The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) is a blueprint designed by the United Nations in an attempt to quantify, qualify and address global issues, several of which are health-related, in the year 2015.

The accompanying graphic, created by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluations (IHME), is a further attempt to visualize this big data in a way that will be helpful. It includes information on issues such as child mortality, maternal mortality and the spread of diseases such as HIV, AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.

The graphic can be seen in an interactive format for anyone who wishes to educate themselves on global trends that affect millennial development goals, which will be targeted by the UN this year.
