The UN has recently released the 2007 progress chart and report on the 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.

As the report highlights, although progress has been achieved (as an example, the proportion of people living in extreme poverty fell from nearly a third to less than one fifth between 1990 and 2004); yet, if continuing with this success rate, only one of the eight goals is to be achieved by the established deadline.
The goals are highly ambitious and it is clear that there is still much to be done if it is really intended to reach all the goals set for 2015. Lets work so that world leaders abide to what they’ve committed, which is “…to spare no effort to free our fellow men, women and children from the abject and dehumanizing conditions of extreme poverty”.
