ONE's mission is to help the world's poorest countries, especially in Africa, to beat AIDS and achieve the Millennium Development Goals. Through the G8, DATA helped negotiate and advocate for a new high watermark of promises at the 2005 Summit, involving a doubling of aid promised for Africa by 2010, including improvements in aid quality. ONE, and before it DATA, place great value on aid efficiency and the kinds of aid which empower the poor and help them hold governments accountable and assist their fight against corruption and poverty.
