Your Health and Rights Communication Priorities, Post 2015?

The post-2015 framework should include access to justice and legal empowerment targets in a governance goal to address issues most critical to human development - from "Justice 2015 - Measuring Justice in the post-2015 Development Framework".

That paper, from a consortium of organizations includes proposed targets such as: "Ensure the participation of citizens in monitoring essential services such as healthcare, water and education".
