SEA/RC66/5 - WHO reform and programme budget matters: WHO reform: financing dialogue and programme budget 2016-2017
View StatisticsShow Statistical Information
AbstractInitially, the reform agenda focused on financing and better aligning of the Organization’s objectives and resources. It has now evolved into a Member States-driven process to address more fundamental questions about WHO’s priorities, its governance and management to make the Organization more effective, efficient and accountable. During the Sixty-fifth World Health Assembly in May 2012, a consolidated paper, including background papers with proposals under each main section was submitted for in-depth discussions. During the Sixty-sixth World Health Assembly in May 2013, WHO reform was discussed under documents A66/4 (WHO reform: High-level implementation plan and report) and A66/48 (WHO reform: Financing of WHO). The report update given to the Sixty-sixth World Health Assembly presented a comprehensive overview of progress up to the end of the first quarter of 2013 in the three main areas of WHO reform: programmes and priority-setting; governance; and management, as well as a high-level implementation plan for reform. The report covers 12 elements of reform identified in the monitoring and implementation framework considered by the Sixty-fifth World Health Assembly in May 2012, and includes an additional element on change management. Document A66/4 was noted by the World Health Assembly. 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 made the following recommendations: Actions by Member States (1) To ensure appropriate participation, particularly from ministries of health, in the November 2013 financing dialogue, to ensure better understanding of the funding of the Programme Budget 2014–2015. (2) To review for consideration of its future application in respect of 2016–2017 bottom-up operational planning, the country prioritization methodology as outlined by the Secretariat. Action by WHO-SEARO (1) To provide full support to Member States in their preparation for participating in the financing dialogue in November. The working paper and the SPPDM recommendations are submitted to the Sixty-sixth Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.
