Abstract:
Session presented on Saturday, July 26, 2014: The UN System serves as the world's main transnational forum. While only the governmental representatives make decisions, civil society, through its representatives, have an opportunity to offer voice and input into the deliberative process. STTI and NIGH (Nightingale Initiative for Global Health) are affiliated with the Department of Public Information (DPI) and accredited with Special Consultative Status by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), assuring a voice and a place at policy discussions. This symposium includes presentations by a NYC based panel that will share their experience participating in UN activities, events and committees. As they describe and illustrate the responsibility of NGO representatives, they will share the unique perspective of an insider's view of establishing a distinct role for nurse advocates associated with the UN System, as members and leaders in the global NGO community. This is particularly crucial in shaping the Post 2015 Development Agenda, which concerns nurses world wide in every area of professional practice and specialization. The expanding role of youth participation (18-24 years of age) in the UN System will be explored by Youth Representatives from STTI and NIGH, as well as their role in generating collegial input in the Post 2015 development goals. The final presentation will describe the development of a regional UN Interest Group that may be replicated in all STTI Regions. Originated in NYC due to the proximity of UN Headquarters, the Interest Group has provided an opportunity for interested STTI and NIGH members to learn about contemporary UN initiatives and participate as individuals and chapters in projects and activities associated with global health issues and concerns. The Interest Group can serve as a model for participation in the process of input in SDG Development as a new opportunity for global, people centered partnerships establishing greater synergies between health and other civil society sectors.
