Matters Relating to Programme Development and Management Review of the Implementation of Workplans For PB 2008-2009.
AbstractThis paper reviews the WHO collaborative programmes in the South-East Asia Region implemented during the 2008-2009 biennium. The budget for Assessed Contribution (AC) for the Region for the 2008-2009 biennium stands at US$100 million, with the Voluntary Contribution (VC) budget being US$ 438 million for a total regional budget of US$ 538 million. Voluntary Contributions play an increasingly significant role in financing the programme of work of the Region (81%). As at 31 May 2009, resources available under AC stood at US$100 million (98%) and resources mobilized against VC budget stood at US$ 299 million (68%). Over 75% of VC to the Region are specified and contribute to disparities in the distribution of resources between countries and across Strategic Objectives. Expenditure at country level of AC stands at 69% of resources available and at 65% of VC available. The Implementation has been particularly low for Strategic Objectives 4, 7, 8, 9 and 10. This paper is submitted to the SPPDM for its consideration.
