From MDGs to Post-2015 SDGs: On the right track for Women´s, Children´s and Adolescents´ Health in global health planning?
Monday, November 2, 2015: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Year 2015 is the time to take a look at how well we did on MDGs in MNCH - MDG 4 (Infant Health) and MDG 5 (Maternal Health) - and to assess the process and progress on incorporation of maternal, neonatal and child health in the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals. The panel members include experts who have been assessing and/or directly involved in the process and who can speak to the progress, challenges, and debates going on from the point of view of various stakeholders: what are the questions, issues, points of disagreement/agreement, what advocacy is needed to stay on the right track, what financing has been provided, and what is now needed and available. We will look at what has gone well and what has not in relation to the MDGs, what did we learn from them, and how will RMNCAH in the new SDGs build on and improve on progress made with the MDGs.
Session Objectives: 1. Identify the progress and challenges to meeting goals in reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, and adolescent health that have been presented by the MDGs.
2. Identify the processes, challenges and perspectives for incorporating RMNCAH into the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
