In September 2000, the United Nations Millennium Summit proposed eight Millennium Development Goals to encourage policy change toward poverty. The goals seek to offer concrete ideas on how each country can develop an action plan to pull itself into a higher stastical bracket in key demographic areas, such as halting the spread of HIV/AIDS, halving adult illiteracy, or enrolling boys and girls in primary schools by 2015.
