Health priorities post 2015
Health priorities Goalspost-2015

  • What is the priority health agenda for the 15 years after 2015?

    • What progress has been made towards the health MDGs? What unfinished health agenda remains?

    • In what way are new health needs evolving?

    • Intersection of health with other development priorities and intersectoral strategies

Framing the health goal s
Framing the health goal(s) Goals

  • How does health fit in the post 2015 development agenda?

    • How do health, and health goals, interact with the dimensions of sustainable development? Links with the development of the Sustainable Development Goals?

    • How do we ensure that the unfinished MDG agenda is reflected in the post 2015 agenda?

    • How can overarching health goal(s) be framed in a way that has traction with politicians and the public; and are also amenable to measurement and monitoring?

    • Capturing equity, the specific needs of marginalized populations, social determinants, and the implementation of human rights-based approaches in overarching health goal(s)

Measurement of progress towards the health goals
Measurement of progress towards the health goals Goals

  • What are the best indicators and targets for health?

    • Health status (e.g. life expectancy, years of healthy life)

    • Conditions and means that create better health and can protect people from poverty (including universal health coverage)

    • Combination of both? Other options?

    • How can a very limited number of high level indicators and targets be linked to the much broader monitoring needs of the health sector?

    • How can measurement move beyond averages to track progress of different groups within countries and measure equity?

Ensuring a process and outcome that is relevant to the key stakeholders
Ensuring a process and outcome that is relevant to the key Goalsstakeholders

    • How can we ensure effective working relations between countries and key partners in terms of alignment and harmonisation with a focus on development results?

    • How can civil society and NGOs, as well as the private sector and academia be engaged more effectively in defining and furthering the health-related goals and targets, while also bearing in mind their accountability and responsibility?
