SEA/RC66/4 - WHO reform and programme budget matters: twelfth general programme of work (GPW) and proposed programme budget 2014-2015
AbstractThe Sixty-sixth World Health Assembly in May 2013 approved the Twelfth General Programme of Work (GPW) which establishes: the overarching health mission, principles and values; changes to the results-based framework; six high-level health leadership priorities; six categories of work; 30 technical programme areas; and the aspiration of results of the Organization for a six-year period 2014–2019. The Programme Budget 2014–2015 approved at the Sixty-sixth World Health Assembly is to be the primary instrument to express the full scope of work of the Organization, along with the roles and responsibilities of all levels of the Organization (country offices, regional offices and headquarters). It is also to be the basis for the detailed 2014–2015 operational planning that is being initiated in the final part of 2013. The attached working paper discusses the impact of the Twelfth GPW and the Programme Budget for the 2014–2015 biennium, in the context of the South-East Asia Region. The Sixth Meeting of the Subcommittee on Policy and Programme Development and Management (SPPDM), held from 4 to 5 July 2013, reviewed the attached working paper and after deliberations made the following recommendations: Actions by Member States (1) To engage in the process of allocating the budget-centre budget-space envelopes at Category Level, with initial indications given by the WHO Secretariat at the programme area level, and to prepare draft workplans for the Programme Budget 2014–2015 ahead of the Sixty-sixth Regional Committee in September 2013. (2) To collaborate with Member States in the Region, and with the WHO Secretariat to coordinate technical work with a regional perspective, where possible, to maximize utilization of a reduced Programme Budget for the 2014–2015 biennium. (3) To work closely with the Secretariat to ensure that the Programme Budget allocation method is used to determine the budget-centre budget-space-envelopes for 2014–2015. (4) To support the workplanning, within the restricted timeframe, by utilizing the proposed budget-centre budget-space-envelopes, as presented to the SPPDM. Actions by WHO-SEARO (1) To ensure an earlier start to, and more complete, biennial implementation by: a. ensuring that country workplans are approved in a timely manner; b. ensuring that the assessed contribution allocations are distributed promptly at the beginning of the biennium; c. ensuring that there is sufficient carried-forward voluntary contribution funding on the workplans at the beginning of the biennium for implementation to begin. (2) To work with countries in the budget planning and prioritization at programme area level, within categories, and in drafting the workplans for 2014–2015 using the proposed budget-centre budget-space-envelopes. (3) For WHO Representatives, in collaboration with Member States, to revisit the technical prioritization matrix of each country to reconfirm its validity. (4) To proceed with operational planning with a target of end-July 2013, for establishment of the draft operational plans 2014–2015. The working paper and the SPPDM recommendations are submitted to the Sixty-sixth Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.
