This study also aims to offer a more complete view of the many necessary measures to
achieve global and coherent actions from donor countries. However, it must be pointed
out that just as the choice of measures contained in the MDGs can be arbitrary, so can

Emergencies in medicine are difficult on two fronts: they may challenge both the
health of the patient and the skills of the doctor in charge. If the latter, the former
may deteriorate rapidly. Thus, the definition of an emergency indeed depends on
who is facing it. As we mature along our clinical pathways of education, training, and
experience, the risk of going through a personal professional emergency is continuously
reduced. Nevertheless, throughout our medical career, accurate self-assessment
and subsequent control of our actions remain our most important qualities.
Moreover, many areas of sustainable development remain technically ambiguous, making
it difficult to plan an effective course of action. For example, the forestry industry has
had difficulty defining what constitutes sustainable forest management. Some critics
believe that simply replacing trees is not enough, because harvesting destroys the
biodiversity of the forest. Clearly, more research will be needed to resolve such technical
From a broader perspective, however, it is clearly in the interest of business to operate
within a healthy environment and economy.
Unfortunately, the United States lags behind other countries in recognizing the importance of robotics
technology. While the European Union, Japan, Korea, and the rest of the world have made significant
R&D investments in robotics technology, the U.S. investment, outside unmanned systems for defense
purposes, remains practically non-existent.
SRH programs can help improve the nutritional status of women and their
children and advance progress on the hunger and maternal and child health
targets. Supplemental feeding programs for pregnant women, improving wom-
en’s knowledge of the nutritional requirements of themselves and their children
and increasing women’s power to negotiate access to needed nutrition must
be part of a multi-intervention strategy. Closely spaced pregnancies and the
associated high fertility levels place women at an increased risk of anemia and
other conditions of absolute and relative malnutrition.
Furthermore, in order to boost innovative drugs and health solutions in Europe the Health
Theme makes a major effort into investigator-driven clinical trials in various fields. With a
focus on brain-related diseases, diabetes, and cancer (incorporating life style issues and social
determinants of health) the 2011 work programme addresses major health-related societal
challenges. Finally, with a focus on antimicrobial drug resistance and emerging epidemics,
the Health Theme continues to address global health issues of utmost importance.
