In September 2019, 12 multilateral agencies launched the “Global Action Plan for Healthy Lives and Well-being for All” (GAP) as a joint plan “to better support countries over the next 10 years to accelerate progress towards the health-related Sustainable Development Goals.”
At a civil society workshop on “How to advance cooperation and solidarity within and beyond aid” that took place in Kampala on 15-16 November 2019 and concluded with the launch of the “Kampala Initiative”, the GAP case was dealt with by one of the four thematic working groups. In its assessment of the case, the group agreed that various aspects of the GAP, its making and implementation deserve civil society attention, and finally decided to launch a “Watch the GAP” task group in view of providing a critical civil society perspective on the implementation of the Global Action Plan.
