Indonesia as a Pathfinder to End Violence against Children - Discussion Paper. End Violence against Children. (2016)


In each pathfinder country, the aim is to build on the progress countries have already made to prevent and address violence, and provide a platform for renewed ambition. There is an opportunity to align national commitments with the ambitions of Agenda 2030 to end all forms of violence against children (SDG16.2) and related targets. The package of prevention strategies can be used to increase commitment to and resources for prevention, based on the best available evidence. The Partnership will support pathfinder countries by helping bring together potential in-country partners, providing technical assistance and funding. 

This report is based on a pathfinder scoping visit to Indonesia, and its national commitment to preventing and addressing violence and as part of its plans to implement Agenda 2030. It represents an important first step for Indonesia on the road to pathfinder status – for an overview of the pathfinder process.

Ethics Guidance for the Implementation of the TB Strategy. WHO. (2017)


The World Health Organization End TB Strategy is fully aligned with the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Both require due attention to equity, human rights and ethics. In fact, “protecting human rights, ethics and equity” is one of the four key principles of the WHO End TB Strategy. The SDG agenda itself is inspired by a simple motto: “Leave no one behind”. Ensuring that these essential principles guide the implementation of the End TB Strategy is a must, especially when tuberculosis (TB) is rampant among the most vulnerable and marginalized populations everywhere in the world.

Human Development Report 2016. UNDP. (2017)


In past decades, there has been significant gains in human development levels in almost every country; but millions of people have not benefited from this progress. Who has been left behind and why? The Human Development Report 2016 ’Human Development for Everyone’ looks into these two questions. It identifies recognizes that in every society certain groups are far more likely to suffer disadvantages than others and identifies deep-rooted, and often unmeasured, barriers to development.

It sets forward policy recommendations at the national level and also looks at ways in which the global development landscape could be made more effective in the fight to leave no one behind and achieve the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
