SEA/RC59/10 Rev.1 - Proposed regional programme budget 2008-2009
AbstractThe planning and formulation of proposed regional Programme Budget (PB) for 2008-2009 will follow a significantly different approach compared to previous bienniums. It will be based on the six-year Medium–term Strategic Plan (MTSP) covering the period 2008-2013. The MTSP and the PB 2008-2009 have been combined into one document at the global level. As such, this approach would guide the review of the proposed regional PB 2008-2009. The proposed regional Programme Budget for 2008-2009 reflects the Region-specific priorities for the biennium. Part I of this document describes the scope of the strategic objectives, regional indicators and targets, regional issues and challenges, and strategic approaches of the region to be used in achieving respective strategic objectives for 2008-2009 biennium. Part II presents the proposed regional Programme Budget for 2008-2009 which also coincides with the first biennium of the MTSP. The resources required to implement the work in the Region have been estimated through consultations between and among the country offices and the Regional Office. It encompasses funds from both the Regular Budget and Voluntary Contributions envisaged for the 2008-2009 biennium. Appropriate comparisons have been made with the regional budgets pertaining to previous bienniums in order to indicate key changes represented in the proposed regional PB 2008-2009. The preliminary draft of the proposed regional Programme Budget for 2008-2009 was discussed at the 43rd meeting of the Consultative Committee for Programme Development and Management (CCPDM) held in June 2006 in the Regional Office, New Delhi. In addition, discussions were held with Ministry of Health counterparts in Member States for reviewing it. The proposed regional Programme Budget 2008-2009 is now submitted for review and comments by the 59th session of the Regional Committee. Based on these comments, appropriate revisions will be made and further discussions will be held with Member States of the Region to develop the detailed operational plans for the 2008-2009 biennium.
