Challenges in global health – 2015 and beyond
10 November 2014
Our involvement in the many post-2015 consultations has focused on calling for a comprehensive global vision for health. With less than 500 days to go until the MDGs expire, the progress in many goals is uneven, and the most marginalised and excluded people continue to be left behind.
To this end, as part of Action for Global Health (AfGH) - a European network of NGOs advocating for Europe to play a more proactive role in enabling countries to meet the MDGs – we are organising a panel debate in the UK on Tuesday 25 November, 5.30-7pm.
Speakers will include Mike Kane, PPS to Labour Shadow Secretary of State for International Development (Mary Creagh), Nick Herbert MP, Co-chairman and Founder of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Global Tuberculosis, and Martin Horwood MP, Chair of the Liberal Democrats International Policy Committee. It will be chaired by Guardian journalist, Eliza Anyangwe.
If you are in London and wish to attend the event at the Palace of Westminster in London, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
This event is being held in partnership with the All Party Parliamentary Groups on Global Health, Population, Development & Reproductive Health, Global Tuberculosis, HIV & AIDS and Malaria & Neglected Tropical Diseases.
