    Put health high on agenda: WHO

    The World Health Organization’s Director General has asked the member states to ‘do everything’ they can to ensure that health occupies ‘a high place’ on the post-2015 development agenda.

    “Investing in the health of people is a smart strategy for poverty alleviation,” Margaret Chan said in her opening remarks of the 66th World Health Assembly that kicked off in Geneva on Monday.

    At least 3000 delegates of 194 member states are attending the nine-day long annual gathering at this Swiss lakeside city in a time when globally the preparations are on to set the after 2015 development goals when the current MDGs end.

    The WHO chief, however, also urged member states to increase their efforts to achieve MDG-set targets within the remaining days.

    Be the Change

    BE THE CHANGE is a new global public awareness campaign around citizen action and `civic space’.


    BE THE CHANGE seeks to inspire and celebrate citizen action and raise awareness about `civic space’, the importance of it and our need to protect it. The freedom to speak out (freedom of expression), to organise (freedom of association) and to take action (freedom of assembly) are all part of what is called `civic space’ and no one has the right to deny you these rights. Learn more about this exciting new campaign by visiting us at www.civicus.org/bethechange/
