WHAT is it all about???

By the year 2015, the eight Millennium Development Goals set 14 years ago will be up for renewal and remodeling. Many decisions will be made in the next year, including the development of new health-related Millennium Development Goals and related targets and indicators for the post 2015 development agenda, yet there remains unfinished business in the health MDGs in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), with new emerging health priorities accorded the dual burden of infectious diseases and non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

The scale of the challenge posed demands an extraordinary response hence the need to bring together a leading and interdisciplinary group of researchers to discuss these issues and advance recommendations for the “Post-2015 Development Agenda.”
