As appropriate, they will also contribute to progress in the MDG 5.A and 6.A indicators: maternal mortality ratio, proportion of births attended by skilled health personnel, HIV prevalence among population aged 15- 24 years, condom use at least for high-risk sex, and the proportion of the population aged 15-24 years with comprehensive correct knowledge of HIV/AIDS.
