31 January 2013 - Geneva - The United Nations has launched My World, a global survey that asks for people's opinion on the issues that should be prioritized in the post-2015 development agenda.
Respondents can select six issues from the 16 listed on the site, including better healthcare. The results of the survey will be submitted to the United Nations Secretary General's High Level Panel for Post-2015 before their meetings in Monrovia, Liberia, Bali, Indonesia and New York, USA and will be used to inform the panel's final report and recommendations for a new development framework due in May 2013.
Respondents can also suggest their own priority issue. The Stop TB Partnership secretariat encourages all partners and friends to add the priority:
No more deaths from tuberculosis.

In a separate initiative, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has launched the My Hope for 2030 campaign to find out what people from around the world think should be the next set of development goals.
Partners and friends are invited to add their own hope for 2030 on the facebook campaign site and vote for existing messages such as young TB advocate Adela Colorado's call for a world free of childhood TB.
