The report entitled Malaysia - The Millennium Development Goals at 2010 confirmed that Malaysia had achieved most of its MDGs ahead of time while showing progress in moving towards some of the goals and targets that it has yet to achieve. This report, prepared by the UNDP in Malaysia in close cooperation with the Economic Planning Unit of the Prime Minister's Department, reaffirms the 2005 findings that Malaysia's achievements were indeed impressive in aggregate terms. Nonetheless, findings in this report also acknowledged that Malaysia still lagged behind in areas such as maternal mortality, women in managerial positions and female political representation, HIV/AIDS and the persistence of tuberculosis at a relatively high level.
