The ‘Health in the Post-2015 Agenda’ from the Global Thematic Consultation on Health (led by WHO and UNICEF) states that the post-2015 health agenda should:
1) Include specific health-related targets as part of other development sector goals.
2) Take a holistic, life-course approach to people’s health with an emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention.
3) Accelerate progress where MDG targets have not been achieved and set more ambitious targets for the period to come.
4) Address the growing burden of NCDs, mental illness, and other emerging health challenges.
This is the first time mental illness has been explicitly included in the Post-MDG agenda.
