lao pdr call for action to integrate srhr into the post-2015


The Post 2015 framework is addressing the unfinished business of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). These goals and targets must build on the achievements as well as on the weak points of countries, particularly least developed and developing countries from achieving these targets. The framework are far beyond the MDGs and consists of 17 sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets which included accelerating the progress in reducing the Newborn, Child and MMR and ensure universal access to SRH services, including for family planning, information and education (UNDP, 2015).

We (The University of Health Sciences) call for the full integration of all the proposed 17 sustainable development goals into the national development plans post 2015 in Lao PDR, especially Goal 3 on ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages; Goal 4 on ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong education for all, and Goal 5 on achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls.
