Would the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals’ initiative still be worthwhile even if they all are not activated within the allotted time?

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

Since 2002 the United Nations have been developing goals that they wish to accomplish between 2015 and 2020. These ‘Millennium Development Goals’ or MDGs range from diminish world poverty to prevent the outbreak of HIV/Aids, the basic focus of these goals is to make the world a better place. The Millennium Development Goals are the product of The Millennium Project that was commissioned by the United Nations’ Secretary-General in 2002 as an attempt to create a supported plan of action to help decrease the poverty, disease, and hunger in the world. Over the next 6 years or so the United Nations discussed the project at length and decided what and how to fund the project and prospective goals and in 2010 the project was reviewed with a fleshed out plan for each of the following goals:


• End Poverty and Hunger
• Provide Universal education
• Promote Gender Equality
• Child Health
• Maternal Health
• Combating HIV/AIDS
• Environmental Sustainability
• Global Partnership

Would it be worth the effort if achieving these goals within the allotted time would mean only completing the bare minimum of some of the dire targets such as: maternal health care, child health care, and HIV/AIDS prevention?
