#SocialDeterminants Chat: Achieving MDGs 4, 5, and 6

Organized by Johnson & Johnson Worldwide Corporate Contributions

For many people, a new year signifies a new beginning—an opportunity to recommit to achieving big goals. As of January 15th, we have 350 days left to achieve the MDGs. As our community continues to pursue progress towards these goals, we know that we cannot realize the promise of #Action2015 (a campaign on post-2015 sustainable development goals) without prioritizing #SocialDeterminants of health.

Join us Thursday, January 15th to take a special look at the social determinants impacting success on MDGs 4 (reduce child mortality), 5 (improve maternal health), and 6 (combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases).

Achieving MDGs 4, 5, and 6 is a monumental challenge, requiring a global effort. We will co-host a Twitter chat organized by Johnson & Johnson Worldwide Corporate Contributions on Thursday, January 15th at 3 pm ET (GMT – 5) for members of the global development community; join us to discuss the social determinants standing in the way of making MDGs 4, 5, and 6 a reality.

  1. I have worked on Microfinance and livelihoods in a State of India. Willing to share as and when opportunity comes to me.

    • Hi Ascanio,
      Can you give us some specific examples from Forum G-20, Rio+20, post-2015 analysis, and Basil III?
      I hope to see you on Twitter today at 3pm ET to share with the global health sector actors that will be joining us. It’s important to break down the silos of development between health and economic opportunity/ microfinance. It’s important that they know the opportunities that await them should they partner with microfinance institutions.
      Best,
      Sabina
