The MDG's set an unprecedented global framework for development that is a crucial step towards ending poverty and inequality by 2015.

The eight MDG goals include:
1. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
2. Achieve universal primary education
3. Promote gender equality and empower women
4. Reduce child mortality
5. Improve maternal health
6. Combat HIV/AIDs, malaria, and other diseases
7. Ensure environmental sustainability
8. Develop a global partnership for development

Last year, a record breaking 116 million people stood up and took action to end poverty and help achieve these Goals.  Through this movement, we have set and broken the Guinness World Record for the largest mobilization around a single cause in recorded history.
However, this is a time of extraordinary challenge. The global financial crisis is having a devastating impact of this on the world’s poorest and most vulnerable.  And the climate crisis threatens to undo the gains that have been made towards achieving the MDGs. With just six years left to the 2015 deadline, no region is on track to achieve their goals.

We must make the MDGs an urgent priority and 'Stand Up, Take Action' is a vital opportunity to send a clear message to world leaders to deliver on the promise we made to the world’s people to end poverty and usher in a new era of equality, health, and prosperity.

Together, we can make poverty history. Join millions worldwide to 'STAND UP and TAKE ACTION' today!
