The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) reflect the aspirations of peoples in a better life through the selection of certain objectives. The progress of these objectives is pursued through a series of indicators which measure the achievement of those specified objectives within the period 1990-2015. The general objectives that the world leaders agreed on are: to halve extreme poverty, enforce universal primary education, promote gender equality, reduce the mortality rate among children under five by two-thirds, reduce maternal mortality rate by three quarters, combat AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis, ensure environmental sustainability, and develop a global partnership for development.
The development outlook in the last two decades indicates that the government has managed to achieve most of the MDGs. The State had reached its goals in achieving better standards of prosperity for its citizens. This can be seen in the fields of health, education, environmental sustainability, global partnership for development, promoting gender equity, and women empowerment.
