Azmat Gani argues that most Pacific Island mini states are off track to achieve satisfactory levels of well-being. Poverty levels are high; children under the age of five years are underweight; immunization rates are deteriorating; maternal mortality rates are high; and gender gaps are increasing. He looks at what data is available in order to show the low levels of well-being and what gaps need to be filled if these mini states are to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
