The UK International Development committee "report begins (Chapter 2) with a more detailed exploration of the processes by which the post-2015 development goals are being developed and the consultations which are being undertaken. In Chapter 3, we consider what the overarching purpose of the new goals should be, including consideration of the extent to which development should be integrated with issues of environmental sustainability. In Chapter 4, we assess the potential content of the post-2015 framework. In doing so, our intention is not to be prescriptive, but to set out some broad issues to be borne in mind when the framework is being developed.

"Through quotations and summaries of the submissions and discussions, this report provides an overview of principal civil society recommendations on each of the consultation questions. Each question has been reported upon in a stand-alone section of this synthesis report, and therefore there is some overlap and repetition in the content of responses across the 13 questions. This overlap should be seen as an indicator of what respondents perceive as critical to the discussion. The themes that recur throughout the synthesis report are identified in the Executive Summary"

Health warning : why Europe must act now to rescue the health Millennium Development Goals (UK Edition)

ACTION FOR GLOBAL HEALTH
July 2007

Expand view

Health is an essential component of international development. Many of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) affect health and three of them are specifically focused on health. However at the mid-point in time between these goals being agreed in 2000 and the time when they are to be reached in 2015, although some progress has been made, this has been patchy and insufficient. As a result, all three of these goals are significantly off-track. This report considers general issues relating to rescuing the health MDGs; Europe’s role in achieving this; and the UK Government’s contribution to realising the health MDGs
