PHM supports a civil society statement calling for a stand-alone goal on EQUITY in the post-2015 development agenda

The PHM joined a large number of civil society organizations representing constituencies from all corners of the globe who are deeply alarmed by the proposal to combine the Goal 10 on Equality with other listed goals of the post-2015 developmental agenda. As the Post 2015 agenda is meant to guide development efforts over the next 15 years, it must recognize inequalities as one of the most vital issues of our time by having a clear goal to tackle inequality and by including equality-related targets into other goals. These two approaches are mutually supportive. However, without a stand-alone goal on equality to deliver this clear message, the agenda risks losing the support of individuals, organizations and communities around the world.

Read and sign onto the statement.
