Millennium Development Goals: Bangladesh makes progress

Fifteen years ago, the United Nations marked the new millennium with a series of pledges aimed at improving the lives of the world's poorest people.

The Millennium Development Goals were ambitious, with eight different targets, covering issues including poverty reduction and improvements in healthcare and education.

The goals were to be met by 2015, and while progress has been mixed, Bangladesh is one country that has made big gains.

As part of a BBC News series on Millennium goals, Mishal Husain looks at the changes in the Kuril slum in the capital Dhaka.
