                                                               Millennium Development Goals                                                            

 

Originally brought about during the Millennium Summit in 2000, the Millennium Development Goals are a set of standards intended to bring about the Millennium Declaration’s assertion that every individual has the right to dignity, freedom, equality, a basic standard of living that includes freedom from hunger and violence, and the encouragement of tolerance and solidarity.

In September 2010, the Summit on the Millennium Development Goals concluded with the adoption of a global action plan to achieve the eight anti-poverty goals by their 2015 target date.  Major new commitments for women's and children's health and other initiatives against poverty, hunger and disease were also announced.
