Millennium Development Goals
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are eight international development goals that were officially established following the Millennium Summit of the United Nations in 2000, following the adoption of the United Nations Millennium Declaration. All 193 United Nations member states and at least 23 international organizations have agreed to achieve these goals by the year 2015. The goals are: 1. eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, 2. achieving universal primary education, 3. promoting gender equality and empowering women 4. reducing child mortality rates, 5. improving maternal health, 6. combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases, 7. ensuring environmental sustainability, and 8. Developing a global partnership for development.

Debate has surrounded adoption of the MDGs, focusing on lack of analysis and justification behind the chosen objectives, the difficulty or lack of measurements for some of the goals, and uneven progress towards reaching the goals, among other criticisms. Although developed countries' aid for achieving the MDGs has been rising over recent years, more than half the aid is towards debt relief owed by poor countries, with remaining aid money going towards natural disaster relief and military aid which does not further development.
Progress towards reaching the goals has been uneven. Some countries have achieved many of the goals, while others are not on track to realize any. A UN conference in September 2010 reviewed progress to date and concluded with the adoption of a global action plan to achieve the eight anti-poverty goals by their 2015 target date. There were also new commitments on women's and children's health, and new initiatives in the worldwide battle against poverty, hunger and disease.
Government organizations assist in achieving those goals, among them are the United Nations Millennium Campaign, the Millennium Promise Alliance, Inc., the Global Poverty

    Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) address eight of humanity’s current great developmental challenges. These challenges were debated and articulated by UN members for nearly two years before the eight MDGs we know today were defined and agreed upon. Upon adoption, all 193 UN member states agreed to work toward reaching these goals by a 2015 end date (Peeters, 2010). Now thirteen years in, and just two years away from the 2015 deadline, the real effects left from the MDGs are beginning to be seen.…
