In line with the post 2015 health agenda, on February 28th, 2013, a draft report was shared among development workers which reflected an extensive global public consultation, held from September 2012 to January 2013. The 77 page report is titled 'Health in the Post 2015 Development Agenda.'
As a rider to the issue in July 2012, the UN Secretary-General convened the High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda to advice on the global development framework beyond 2015. The Panel is co-chaired by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, and Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom, and it includes leaders from civil society, the private sector, and government. Realizing the Future We Want for All is being used to help frame the work of the Panel, which will submit its report to the UN Secretary-General in the second quarter of 2013.
