Abstract

Learning is a fundamental part of Muslim belief, because Islam does not allow priesthood or mediation between the Followers and the Creator, and every Muslim must learn specific texts for the profession of Faith, few phrases to pronounce intentions of the prayers, and few verses from the Qur’an to perform different ibadah. Islam also offers advices for staying healthy to perform ibadah and remain economically active. The chapter analyses achievements of and gaps in different education and health related indicators of 47 MMCs in Africa and Asia. The discussions in the chapter indicate significant role of the third sector in education in MMCs. The analyses also show that there is no conclusive relationship between public investment and achievement in education and health indicators. It shows that the governments in MMCs, especially those in sub-Saharan Africa, with uncongenial climate or low resource base, that are lagging behind in education and health-related MDG targets, should undertake initiatives for co-operation with the private sector and (nonprofit) third sector for improving education and health. This chapter includes four cases (Bangladesh and Indonesia; and Niger and Senegal) to show differences in performances in the education and health sectors commensurate with that of the third sector, in the respective MMCs. It concludes that better performance in education and health sectors in Bangladesh and Indonesia, with the highest density of TSOs and best third sector capability measure is revealing, and demands further analyses.
