Countries are being reminded of their obligation to provide healthcare for their citizens and to protect professionals who deliver these services, particularly during times of conflict.

That's the message from the UN Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights, Kate Gilmore.

She was at UN Headquarters on Wednesday for a dialogue on how human rights, including the right to health, are reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Ms Gilmore spoke to Paulina Greer prior to the event.
