The Economic and Social Council was established by the UN in 1945. It consists of 54 member states that serve for a three-year term. ECOSOC generally seeks to establish and encourage stronger economic development and social cooperation between states and situations. It addresses social issues of economic relevance as they may hinder the development and progress of a country. Moreover, it “brings people and issues together to promote collective action for a sustainable world”. This committee is also concerned with debating issues surrounding healthcare and its provision. In ECOSOC, issues concerning granting all members of society rights and freedoms regardless of their race, gender, age, status, religion and culture may also be of interest.
