In today's society, poverty is not only a regional issue for the United States, but an issue for all countries. Many different variables factor into a country having a high poverty level, but one variable that needs to be addressed primarily is the educational dilemma.

Moreover, of all admitted countries, the top ten wealthiest countries, in terms of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) would help fund this organization and would be deemed full or providing members. [...]

[...] International cooperation, a joint effort of all countries, to help rid this world of poverty would help alleviate any constraints a country would find itself in. Once the demise of poverty is a reality, countries could throw the millions or billions of dollars being used to combat the issue toward a different issue. One problem exacerbated by the issue of poverty is the HIV/AIDS pandemic. HIV/AIDS and many other infectious diseases continue to impact the poor individuals across the world. [...]
