Besides Bangladesh, five other countries, three from Africa and two from Asia received the UN Millennium Development Goal (MDG) Awards for their significant achievements towards attaining the goal. In September 2000, world leaders endorsed the Millennium Declaration, a commitment to work together to build a safer, more prosperous and equitable world. The Declaration was translated into a roadmap setting out eight time-bound and measurable goals to be reached by 2015, known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs): They include goals and targets on poverty, hunger, maternal and child mortality, disease, inadequate shelter, gender inequality, environmental degradation and the Global Partnership for Development. Bangladesh received the UN award for its remarkable achievements in attaining the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) particularly in reducing child mortality. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina accepted the award at a colourful function at New York's Astoria Hotel on Sunday. Nepal has received a Millennium Development Goal (MDG) Award for significantly improving maternal health. Nepal's permanent representative to the UN, Gyan Chandra Acharya, received the award on behalf of the government at a function in New York, Sunday. Secretary at the health ministry Dr Sudha Sharma was also present at the awards ceremony. Nepal was selected for the award from among 49 Least Developed Countries (LDC)s for the outstanding national leadership, commitment and progress towards achievement of the MDG goal related to improving maternal health. Cambodia has been presented with a Millennium Development Goals Award for its national leadership, commitment and progress towards achievement of Goal 6 - Combating HIV, malaria and other diseases. Cambodia has been honored within the 'Government' category of the annual Awards initiative, presented at a high-profile event in New York City.
