The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) constitute a commitment that the Salvadoran state signed in 2000 and, until 2014, has published three reports on progress in its implementation; However, despite progress, the population has limitations on national ownership of these commitments in their knowledge and dissemination. For purposes of this investigation, will be released the perception of Salvadoran civil society on the implementation of the MDGs in accordance with government policies and programs implemented by the presidential term 2009-2014, in contrast to the information contained in the reports programs progress, published by the Government of El Salvador and the United Nations.
