SECUNDERABAD: Current year marks a major milestone for public health wherein a transition from Millennium Development Goals to the Sustainable Development Goals will occur. The Catholic Health Association of India (CHAI) is at the forefront of this transition which will have wide impact and ramifications on the strategy and trajectory of public health initiatives.
CHAI is in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and has submitted a written statement focusing on the theme “Managing the transition from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): what will it take ?”
The statement has been accepted for distribution to all participants of the High-Level Segment (HLS) of the Economic and Social Council to be held from 6 to 10 July 2015 at the United Nations Headquarters. The statement will be translated into six official United Nations languages and made available at the UN documents repository in July.
The Office for ECOSOC Support and Coordination (OESC) of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs also congratulated CHAI on their continuous efforts to contribute to the work of the Council.
The CHAI founded in 1943, is one of world’s largest not-for-profit healthcare networks and is granted United Nations’ Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) since 2013.
