UN Development Millennium Goals

UN Development Millennium Goals

In September 2000, building upon a decade of major United Nations conferences and summits, world leaders came together at United Nations Headquarters in New York to adopt the United Nations Millennium Declaration, committing their nations to a new global partnership to reduce extreme poverty and setting out a series of time-bound targets - with a deadline of 2015 - that have become known as the Millennium Development Goals.

MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS

The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – which range from halving extreme poverty to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education, all by the target date of 2015 – form a blueprint agreed to by all the world’s countries and all the world’s leading development institutions. They have galvanized unprecedented efforts to meet the needs of the world’s poorest.

GOAL 1:
ERADICATE EXTREME POVERTY & HUNGER

GOAL 2:
ACHIEVE UNIVERSAL PRIMARY EDUCATION

GOAL 3:
PROMOTE GENDER EQUALITY AND EMPOWER WOMEN

GOAL 4:
REDUCE CHILD MORTALITY

GOAL 5:
IMPROVE MATERNAL HEALTH

GOAL 6:
COMBAT HIV/AIDS, MALARIA AND OTHER DISEASES

GOAL 7:
ENSURE ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

GOAL 8:
DEVELOP A GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP FOR DEVELOPMENT
