The Right to Health in the Post-2015 Agenda

The Right to Health in the Post-2015 Agenda

Berlin, 8-9 September 2014. Health politics have become a crucial part of the global agenda. In 2015 UN-member states will take decisions affecting the lives of billions of people as they agree on a new framework to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). One major question in the recent debate on the Post 2015 process is to what extend it has the potential to oblige states, international organizations and private health actors to establish and contribute to health systems equally accessible to all.

In the past decades there has been significant progress in raising awareness for the need of forming a universal health approach. A variety of civil society actors including social movements and the academia has tried to push global health from the sidelines into greater attention on the global political agenda. One actor in this field is Go4Health. It stands for achieving a global health approach and aims to contribute to the implementation of the health related framework program of the European Union addressing innovation, research and technological development policy. A central focus is on the health-related Development Goals for the Post 2015 period.

In order to safeguard and strengthen the position of health in the post-2015 agenda medico international as part of the Go4Health consortium organizes an international workshop titled “Health for all: Implementing the Right to Health in the Post-2015 Agenda”.

This one and a half-days meeting in Berlin brings together experts on health and post-2015 from civil society organizations (notably coming from the global south), politics, academia, international organizations, and state organizations. Also it presents results related to the political and scientific analysis provided by Go4health.
