In 2011 United Nations member states signed off on a set of targets and commitments aimed at reversing the spread of HIV and AIDS throughout the world. Called the Millennium Development Goals, the 193 member countries set 10 goals to be achieved by 2015. The overall purpose is to halt and begin to reverse the HIV epidemic by 2015. This commitment by member nations has had a profound effect and represents unprecedented cooperation and agreement toward the eventual elimination of HIV.
