What are the MDGs?

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