UNFPA works in partnership with governments, other institutions and civil society to advance its mission. Two frameworks guide its activities: The Program of Action adopted at the International Conference on Population and Development in 1994 and the Millennium Development Goals, a set of eight targets aimed at reducing extreme poverty by 2015 Because the dates for achieving these series of solidarity objectives and related targets are rapidly approaching, considerable work has been done to analyze what has produced results, electrify our support and redouble our efforts.
