17 July 2015 - The Third International Financing for Development Conference closed with an agreement on the economic framework to support the sustainable development agenda. While discussions on taxes overshadowed most issues during the global conference the adoption of the 'social compact' promotes the right of all to access essential social public services as free healthcare and education.

The outcome document of the Addis conference also welcomed the Global Financing Facility launched on 13 July which announced that $12 billion in domestic and international, private and public funding has already been aligned to country-led five-year investment plans for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania.
