"The international community has made significant strides towards lifting people out of poverty.... However, inequality persists and large disparities remain regarding access to health and education services and other assets. To reduce inequality, policies should be universal in principle, paying attention to the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations." (United Nations, n.d.)
