"The world has an historic opportunity to eradicate extreme poverty and achieve sustainability and equality for all through the new post-2015 development agenda."
- UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

The UN General Assembly adopted eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2000 to be achieved by 2015. Progress to date has saved lives, ensured that children attend school, reduced maternal deaths, expanded opportunities for women, increased access to clean water, and freed many people from disease. Scroll down for reports of UPF activities that advance the MDGs.
