Egypt has undergone significant political changes since 2011. Its economy is still suffering from the effects, with numerous challenges to the task of restoring economic growth. It is not expected to achieve any of the Millennium Development Goals. Over the past 20 years, Egypt has decreased by half the mortality and malnutrition rates in children under five, and the population’s living standards have improved, albeit in an uneven manner. The extreme poverty rate has declined from 6.1% in 2008 to 4.8 % in 2012, while the poverty rate has increased from 21% to 25% over the same period. Health indicators and literacy rates are unevenly distributed, with virtually all indicators worse in Upper Egypt than in Lower Egypt, and worse in rural areas than in urban areas.
