Make Poverty History "is part of the Global Call to Action against Poverty involving about 80 countries that aims to end the injustice of poverty. It is the largest anti-poverty movement in history.

"In Australia, Make Poverty History is a coalition of more than 60 aid agencies, community groups and religious organisations. The coalition seeks to ensure the Australian Government creates policies that: guarantee more and better aid, debt relief, fairer trade, help poor communities keep their governments accountable, tackle climate change and honour commitments made to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a global plan to halve poverty by 2015." [1]

In 2013 a new successor campaign was launched in the UK called Enough Food For Everyone IF.
