This report is a live document that will be refined to reflect outcomes of ongoing processes and conversations on the post-2015 development agenda. It captures the findings from the global conversation launched through the UNDG national and thematic consultations through which people from all over the world have been invited to help Member States shape the future development agenda (see http://www.worldwewant2015.org/the-global-conversation-begins). Further refinements to the report will be based on the findings from these consultations.
The strategy elaborates UNDP's response to address social, cultural and economic determinants of HIV and Health. UNDP has an important role in supporting health outcomes by helping countries to address the social, cultural and economic determinants of HIV and health, in partnership with UN system and other organizations. This is done through UNDP’s core work in strengthening governance, institutions and management capacity and in improving aid coordination and effectiveness. UNDP also contributes through its coordinating and convening role in bringing together multiple partners and resources at national and local levels.
