Following the establishment of the High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, national governments, global agencies and civil society organizations have accelerated advocacy efforts to promote the inclusion of key actions in the agenda going forward. The UN has clearly identified themes and opportunities for engagement with a broad range of stakeholders in the fast paced, rapidly evolving and deeply engaging process. The Health thematic consultation is facilitated by the Governments of Botswana and Sweden, with WHO and UNICEF providing the technical oversight and support for this process.
The Health thematic group has proposed a broad-based consultation process inviting participation from a wide range of stakeholders including civil society. This online consultation is hosted by the Centre for Health Sciences Training, Research and Development (CHESTRAD) as a part of its learning, sharing and collaborative network, Global Health South, an informal alliance of southern CS engaged in global health in collaboration with Campaign 2015+ and the Civil Society Call to Action on Universal Health Coverage. This survey draws from the following 5 key questions for the Health thematic consultations on the post-2015 development agenda, building upon discussions at the Accra 2012 Dialogue:
1. What are the lessons learnt from the health related MDGs?
2. What is the priority health agenda for the 15 years after 2015?
3. How does health fit in the post-2015 development agenda? What are the best indicators and targets for health?
4. How can country ownership, commitment, capacity and accountability for the goals, targets and indicators be enhanced?
We invite the participation of civil society and other non-state actors, especially those in the global economic south as it directly affects our work, nations, communities and families. Completing this questionnaire will require 25-30 minutes of your time. We ask that you please spare this time to ensure that your contribution and suggestions are taken forward in the post-2015 health and related development agenda.This online consultation will close on the 21st of December 2012:
