Executive Summary

The 2017 meeting of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) took place from 10 to 19 July. A total of 43 countries presented voluntary national reviews, up from 22 countries that presented inaugural reviews at the 2016 HLPF. With this, more than a third of countries will have conducted a voluntary national review, sharing progress, experiences, lessons learned and challenges in implementing the 2030 Agenda. Looking ahead, at the 2018 HLPF, 48 countries will present their national reviews. Three of these will be conducting their second review at the HLPF (Colombia, Egypt, and Switzerland) and one country its third (Togo). This report synthesizes some of the findings of the VNRs, drawing from the written reports. As in the synthesis of the 2016 VNRs, the report uses a theme-based analysis drawn largely from the voluntary common guidelines contained in the Annex to the SecretaryGeneral’s report on critical milestones towards coherent, efficient and inclusive follow-up and review at the global level (A/70/684). This synthesis report examines the efforts of reporting countries to implement the 2030 Agenda, including challenges, gaps, achievements and lessons learned. The high quality of the national reports reflects the effort that the 2017 VNR countries have invested in the preparations for the HLPF. It is evident that countries have built on the solid foundations of the inaugural reports, while adding new and innovative elements.

29th PAN AMERICAN SANITARY CONFERENCE 69th SESSION OF THE REGIONAL COMMITTEE OF WHO FOR THE AMERICAS

POLICY ON ETHNICITY AND HEALTH

Introduction

  1. The Region of the Americas is a multi-ethnic multicultural region inhabited by indigenous peoples, Afro-descendants, Roma, and members of other ethnic groups, making it essential to recognize their different health situations and needs. These populations often endure multiple forms of discrimination and exclusion, resulting in significant inequities, including high levels of poverty and violence, and consequently, the denial of their individual rights and, for indigenous peoples, their collective rights.
  2. This policy is based on recognition of the differences that exist between different ethnic groups, both between countries and within them, and on the recognition of the differences in their challenges, needs, and respective historical contexts, as well as the need for an intercultural approach to health from the standpoint of equality and mutual respect, thereby contributing to better health outcomes and progress toward universal health. This requires recognition of the value of culture and the provision of guidelines that will help countries devise joint solutions and commit to developing policies that take the perspective of the various ethnic groups into account, considering gender, the life course perspective, promotion and respect for individual rights and, for indigenous peoples, collective rights.

29.a CONFERENCIA SANITARIA PANAMERICANA 69.a SESIÓN DEL COMITÉ REGIONAL DE LA OMS PARA LAS AMÉRICAS

POLÍTICA SOBRE ETNICIDAD Y SALUD

Introducción

  1. La Región de las Américas se caracteriza por ser multiétnica y multicultural. En ella coexisten los pueblos indígenas, los afrodescendientes, los romaníes y los miembros de otros grupos étnicos, lo cual implica reconocer diversas realidades y necesidades en el ámbito de la salud. Muchas veces estas poblaciones se enfrentan a múltiples formas de discriminación y de exclusión, lo que conlleva mayores inequidades, como niveles altos de pobreza y violencia y, consecuentemente, la negación de sus derechos individuales y, para los pueblos indígenas, sus derechos colectivos.
  2. Esta política se basa en el reconocimiento de las diferencias que existen entre los distintos grupos étnicos, tanto entre los países como dentro de ellos, así como en el reconocimiento de las diferencias en cuanto a sus retos, necesidades y respectivos contextos históricos, y de la necesidad de un enfoque intercultural de la salud desde un plano de igualdad y respeto mutuo que contribuya a mejorar los resultados en materia de salud y avanzar hacia la salud universal. Para ello, es necesario reconocer el valor de la cultura, y proveer lineamientos que sirvan a los países para crear soluciones conjuntas y para comprometerse a desarrollar políticas desde la perspectiva de los distintos grupos étnicos, considerando el enfoque de género, la perspectiva del curso de vida, la promoción y el respeto de los derechos individuales y, para los pueblos indígenas, los derechos colectivos.

Summary

The 2030 Agenda, with its pledge to leave no one behind, is our boldest agenda for humanity. It will require equally bold changes in the UN development system. The report offers the Secretary-General's vision on the repositioning of the UN development system to deliver on the 2030 Agenda, within the context of his overall reform agenda, with prevention as a cross-pillar priority. It also responds to the mandates contained in GA/RES/71/243 due by June 2017. The report is the product of extensive and inclusive consultations with the UN development system and Member States, and in-depth analysis of relevant studies and data on the system’s present functions and capacities to support the 2030 Agenda.

Al adoptar la Agenda 2030 para el Desarrollo Sostenible, los líderes

del mundo resolvieron liberar a la humanidad de la pobreza, asegurar

un planeta sano para las generaciones futuras y construir sociedades

pacíficas e inclusivas como cimiento para garantizar vidas dignas para

todos.

Este recorrido colectivo tiene el cometido principal de no dejar a nadie

atrás. La Agenda 2030 es deliberadamente ambiciosa y trasformativa,

con un conjunto de 17 Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible integrados e

indivisibles, y metas que nos guíen. Es crucial que esta agenda universal

aplique para todos los países; incluso los más ricos todavía tienen

que garantizar plenamente los derechos de la mujer, conquistar las

desigualdades o salvaguardar el medio ambiente.

La implementación ha comenzado, pero el reloj está corriendo. Este

informe muestra que el ritmo del progreso en muchas áreas es mucho

más lento de lo necesario para alcanzar los objetivos para el 2030
