b) Health care: Ensure access to affordable health care, including essential drugs, on a sustainable basis.
c) Education: Ensure that every girl and boy, regardless of circumstances, completes secondary education and has access to technical and vocational training.
d) Social security: Guarantee income security up to at least the level of the national poverty line.
e) Housing: Ensure decent housing for all with security of tenure.
h) Water and sanitation: Ensure universal access to safe drinking water at home, and in schools, health centres, and refugee camps; end open defecation - ensure universal access to sanitation at school, in the workplace and in the home.
