      What are the Millennium Development Goals?

      The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are eight goals to be achieved by
      2015 that respond to the world's main development challenges. The MDGs are
      drawn from the actions and targets contained in the Millennium Declaration
      that was adopted by 189 nations-and signed by 147 heads of state and
      governments during the UN Millennium Summit in September 2000.

      The eight MDGs break down into 21 quantifiable targets that are measured
      by 60 indicators.

      * Goal 1: Eradicate extreme poverty and 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 ]
