The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are eight international development goals that all 193 United Nations member states and at least 23 international organizations have agreed to achieve by the year 2015. They include eradicating extreme poverty, reducing child mortality rates, fighting disease epidemics such as AIDS, and developing a global partnership for development.
How far along is each country in achieving these goals that their leaders had pledged to achieve by 2015? What are the issues that may be impeding the achievement of these goals? What are the potential solutions? "We the peoples" - please state your country, report the status towards achieving these goals, and ideas for removing impediments.
