    Review of MDGs and discussion on the development agenda after 2015 (post MDGs) have begun. The years of 2012-13 would be the critical time in review and negotiation process, since major issues are usually discussed during the preparatory stage. In-depth interviews for 14 experts were carried out in order to gather opinions on evaluating on-going MDGs as well as proposals on post MDGs in global health. A healthy, educated population is one of the most universally valued goals to achieve. Based on findings of interviews, fundamental concept of global health, equity, how to relate development to environment issues are raised as key points to be included in post MDGs by health and environment experts. It is strongly recommended to strengthen publicity on the post MDGs development agenda to policy-makers and general public in Japan. Academic circles have a role to play in this endeavor.
