The Millennium General Assembly was held at the United Nations in New York in September 2000, where a gathering of world leaders laid out the Millennium Declaration, calling for an end to conflict and support for democracy in all corners of the world. The Declaration also laid out eight simple Millennium Development Goals to be achieved by 2015, with 1990 as the base year. The goals include halving poverty; getting every child, boy and girl, into primary school; ensuring that drinking water and sanitation and other basic services reach an ever-increasing proportion of people; reversing environmental deterioration, and making healthcare, particularly in combating infectious diseases like HIV/Aids and malaria, available to all.
