Letter on Health in the Post-2015 Development Agenda towards the High Level Dialogue in Botswana
Action for Global Health's Network Coordinator Tim Roosen is this week (beginning March 4th) attending the High level Dialgoue on Health which is being held in Botswana.
Ahead of this meeting, AfGH coordinated a letter signed by almost 70 organisations in more than 20 countries representing interests from across the health sector. This statement calls on participants to ensure that Universal Health Coverage is included in the next development framework as a way to bring an end to presentable deaths and realise the right to health for all. We also ask delegates to ensure the 'unfinished business' of the unmet Millennium Development Goals is recommited to in the next framework.
