In the second millennium, “Health for All”, started with the World Health Assembly, 1977, aimed to improve the well being of humankind and to attain a future with peace and security. Much has been accomplished since then, but progress towards Health for All has been too slow in many countries. Therefore, to accelerate the work in this area, the Millennium Summit was held in New York in 2000 and eight main goals were defined to eradicate inequalities throughout the world up to 2015 and increase the common health of mankind. Millennium Development Goals can be accepted as an international contract targeting eradication of extreme poverty on earth. The main difference between these goals and the previous targets is that many more countries have accepted them and expended greater effort than before. Three of the eight goals, eight of the 18 targets and 18 of the 48 indicators deal with health. Achieving these targets requires sustainability and money; however, powerful politics, macroeconomic stability and dynamic governments that work against corruption are also needed. Less developed countries cannot overcome these constraints alone. Therefore, for the future of the world, developed countries should continue their support and all nations should work in collaboration to eradicate the inequalities on the world. It is now, for the first time, that different sectors and institutions are working together to carry humankind to a better healthy future. Thus, Millennium Development Goals will take their place in world history as being the most important progress of the third millennium.
