Aim: To present the data from United Nations 2005 and 2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDG) reports. Results: The World is faced with the increasing problem of inequality. That is why millennium declaration was signed in the year 2000. The United Nations millennium declaration embodies an agreement that developing countries will work to maintain sound economies, to ensure their own development and to address human and social needs. Developed countries, in turn, agree to support poorer countries through aid, trade, and debt relief. A meaningful partnership between rich and poor must also address developing countries\' need for technology, medicines, and jobs for their populations, particularly for the growing ranks of young people. In this paper, two MDG reports from 2005 to 2015 were presented with the analysis of the reasons for which the targets of MDG were not met and how World Association of Perinatal Medicine, International Academy of Perinatal Medicine, Ian Donald School of Medical Ultrasound and International Society Fetus as a Patient can help. Conclusion: More political efforts should be made in order to improve health of the mothers and infants in order to make this world sustainable.
