Description: The WHO Executive Board at its special session on reform in November 2011 requested a two stage evaluation of the WHO reform. The first stage of the evaluation was presented to the Executive Board (EB) in May 2012 and focused on whether the WHO reform proposals had identified an appropriate range of issues that needed to be dealt with in the reform process and made recommendations on the roadmap for the second stage of the evaluation. Those recommendations, and the JIU review of management, administration and decentralization at WHO (2012), have informed the work of the Secretariat concerning the coherence between, and functioning of, the three levels of the Organization. The objective of the second stage of the evaluation is to assess the WHO reform implementation strategy and the Organization’s preparedness to implement the reform process. In particular, this stage of the evaluation is designed to assess whether change management issues and barriers to implementation have been appropriately considered and addressed.
