View StatisticsShow Statistical Information
AbstractThe Organization-wide report on the 2010-2011 Programme Budget Performance Assessment (PBPA) (SEA/RC65/4 Inf Doc 1) was submitted to the Sixty-fifth World Health Assembly in May 2012 after being initially reviewed at the Sixteenth Meeting of the Programme Budget and Administration Committee (PBAC) of the Executive Board. The PBAC, in its report to the World Health Assembly (SEA/RC65/4 Inf Doc 2 – Document A65/44) welcomed the 2010-2011 PBPA report and recognized the important results achieved by WHO in priority areas, in particular those related to health-related Millennium Development Goals, noncommunicable diseases and immunization. At the same time, the PBAC raised some concerns, especially in relation to the methodology of the assessment, querying whether the means of judging performance had not been too self-critical. The PBAC also raised concerns about variation in funding across regions and across Strategic Objectives. The attached document (SEA/RC65/4) provides a summary of the findings of the 2010- 2011 PBPA exercise as conducted in the WHO South-East Asia Region. The summary document includes an overview of key achievements recorded during the biennium, WHO contributions to these achievements, an assessment of the degree of achievement of expected results in the WHO South-East Asia Region, and an overview of financial implementation for each of the 13 Strategic Objectives that comprise the 2010-2011 Programme Budget. The Fifth Meeting of the Subcommittee on Policy and Programme Development and Management (SPPDM), held on 6 July 2012, reviewed the working paper and made the following recommendations: Action by Member States (1) To make use of lessons learnt from the Programme Budget Performance Assessment when providing inputs into the preparation of future programme budgets and country plans.Actions by WHO-SEARO (1) To validate the statistics presented in the paper concerning malaria rapid diagnostics tests and the availability of LLINs/ITNs. (2) To revise the paper before presenting it to the Sixth-fifth Regional Committee, adding a clarification explaining that the figures showing unutilized voluntary contribution (VC) funds include VC funds to be carried forward to future biennia. (3) To add an additional annex to the paper showing the breakdown of SO13 budget implementation by country. The revised working paper and the SPPDM recommendations are submitted to the Sixty-fifth Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.
