JALI

Activities

In JALI's first national consultation, which was taken as an input in developing the Framework for an FCGH, the Center for Health, Human Rights and Development convened a meeting of legal experts in Uganda in September 2013 to discuss and offer their recommendations on the FCGH. A report from the meeting is now available.

 

JALI held a consultation in Geneva before the May 2013 World Health Assembly, leading to a decision to develop a Framework for an FCGH to serve as a platform for an FCGH network. The network, to be the Campaign for an FCGH, is in the process of being launched. Please see our report from the meeting for more details and learn more about the Framework for an FCGH and the FCGH Campaign.

 

JALI also presented at a December 2012 meeting of civil society participants in the International Health Partnership and related initiatives (IHP+).

 

In December 2012, JALI submitted recommendations on post-2015 development goals, to follow the Millennium Development Goals, as part of the formal WHO/UNICEF consultation process. JALI has also participated in several other post-2015 consultative processes, including on health, equity, and AIDS.

 

In November 2012, JALI worked with the the 25-country intergovernmental Partners for Population and Development to prepare a briefing paper for members during their meeting in Bangladesh. JALI also prepared a presentation for the meeting. The outcome was a call in the Dhaka Declaration for "the member countries to endorse the Framework Convention on Global Health (FCGH) in order to close global and domestic health inequities."

 

JALI held a consultation in Washington, DC, in July 2012.

 

JALI held a meeting at the Rockefeller Foundation's Bellagio Center in February 2012.

 

JALI has also provided a submission on the outcome document of Rio+20, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development to be held June 20-22, 2012, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, twenty years after the landmark 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development. We have also encouraged the World Health Assembly to consider the potential for a Framework Convention on Global Health as part of the World Health Organization's reform process.

 

JALI has been part of two regional and global consultations, a Southern African regional dialogue on the right to health in Johannesburg in March 2011, and a global consultation on global governance and financing for health in New Delhi in May 2011. Participants in both consultations recognized the potential value of a Framework Convention on Global Health, endorsing the need to explore such a treaty in the Johannesburg Conference Consensus and the Delhi Statement.
