    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.

    Global Day of Citizen Action

     

    On 16 May 2015, people around the world will be sharing their views on `civic space’ - the freedoms of expression, association and assembly.

     

    The Global Day of Citizen Action engages ordinary citizens by asking them whether they feel free to speak out, organise and take action. In doing so, we get to engage with citizens in an easy way that allows them to give their opinion on `civic space’ and allows civil society organisations like yourself to create awareness about citizen’s rights. It also helps us understand the extent to which civic space is free or restricted in different parts of the world. Learn more about this exciting campaign and how you can take part by visiting us at www.civicus.org/bethechange/gdca
