How can we eradicate poverty? How can we combat deadly disease like HIV/AIDS? Is there’s a solution for quality education?
As we all know, the United Nations Development Programme initiated the Millenium Development Goals started in 2000. There are 189 nations made a pledge to free people from extreme poverty and multiple deprivations. And this initiative turned into the eight Millennium Development Goals.
The 8 Millennium Development Goals are:
- Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
- Achieve universal primary education
- Promote gender equality and empower women
- Reduce child mortality
- Improve maternal health
- Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
- Ensure environmental sustainability
- Develop a global partnership for development
As our country supports UNDP’s Millenium Development Goals, we have to participate in changing our world. There’s a lot of ways that we can contribute in this program.
The sixteen issues have been built up from the priorities expressed by poor people in existing research and polling exercises and they cover the existing Millennium Development Goals, plus issues of sustainability, security, governance and transparency.
MY World will continue gathering people´s voices up to 2015 and results will be shared with the Secretary General and global leaders as they prepare the next development agenda in the run up to 2015.
Be heard and make a stand!
