CMF Response to the UN-NGLS Civil Society Consultation for the Secretary-General, General Assembly and OWG on SDGs on the Report of the High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda (Post-2015 HLP)

Published: 31st July 2013


CMF appreciates the opportunity to engage with the UN-NGLS Civil Society consultation process. Our comments are focussed on the High Level Panel (Post-2015 HLP) report on the five transformational shifts and in particular on the fourth goal to 'Ensure Healthy Lives'.

As an association of medical doctors we see the daily impact of an individual's faith on their physical and mental wellbeing. We consider that the fundamental link between an individual's faith and their health must be expressly recognised in the post-2015 development agenda and recommend and request that governments commit to allow all individuals freedom to choose and practice their faith.

This paper includes the online responses made on the World We Want 2015 website for the UN-NGLS consultation in July 2013.
