World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia ( 2004-08-06 )
Abstract

The Regional Committee had, at its fifty-sixth session, held in 2003, selected the supplementary intercountry programme (ICP-II) Intensification of cross-border collaboration in priority communicable diseases such as HIV/AIDS, polio, tuberculosis and malaria, kala-azar, dengue and SARS, for in-depth evaluation in selected Member States of the Region in 2004 and reporting the outcome to its fiftyseventh session. The in-depth evaluation of the subject supplementary intercountry programme was undertaken in four countries of the region, viz. Bangladesh, India, Myanmar and Thailand, by joint teams comprising (a) high-level national officials familiar with the programmes, (b) experts from WHO collaborating centres and (c) staff from the Regional Office and WHO headquarters. The joint teams evaluated the intercountry programme for the bienniums 2000-2001, 2002-2003 and 2004-2005, assessing whether the objectives of the ICP were/or being achieved. The teams met officials and programme implementation staff from the ministries of health, the Regional Office, WHO country offices, concerned NGOs and development partners. The teams also reviewed relevant WHO and country documents. The teams assessed the implementation of the supplementary intercountry workplans in terms of indicators and targets, adequacy of the ICP outputs in the first two bienniums, the catalytic effects of ICP including policy changes, additional funding from government/donors and strengthening partnerships for continued work, and improvements in the ICP workplans with special emphasis on the ensuing bienniums. Recommendations were made by the evaluation teams with regard to: (a) ICP II in general, and (b) cross-border collaboration. Based on the analysis of the situation by the joint teams in respect of each country, a report had been prepared by the team members and the Regional Office. The report of the joint evaluation was reviewed by the CCPDM at its forty-first meeting, held in the Regional Office from 19-21 July 2004.This is now being submitted to the Regional Committee for its consideration. While taking up this agenda item, the Regional Committee may also take into consideration the observations and recommendations of the CCPDM.

SEA/RC57/7 - Review of proposed programme budget 2006-2007
World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia ( 2004-08-06 )
Abstract

budget whose formulation revolved around a set of objectives, strategies and Organization-wide expected results, within the framework of 36 Areas of Work, emphasizing Organization-wide expected results and indicators within each such area of work. The lessons learnt in implementing the previous biennial programme have formed a crucial input in the process. The Proposed Programme Budget builds upon achievements and lessons learnt. It sets out current and emerging priorities, and devotes greater attention to the challenges faced by global public health, which have led to increased demands on, and expectations from, WHO. It has been organized around the Areas of Work which represent WHO’s main orientations, with well-defined scopes and contents. Draft Regional Areas of Work, attached to the Proposed Programme Budget document, outline the regional situation in terms of issues, challenges, goals, objectives and strategic approaches. The Proposed Programme Budget also reflects the Director-General’s proposal to increase the overall level of the budget by 12.8% as compared with the previous biennium. The Proposed Programme Budget is an important step in the consultative process and is a key instrument in WHO’s ongoing work. The document was discussed at length by the CCPDM, at its forty-first meeting in July 2004 as agenda item 3.3, and its observations and recommendations have been highlighted in its report (Section 7, doc. SEA/PDM/Meet.41/11). The CCPDM recommended that the Proposed Programme Budget 2006-2007 be endorsed by the Regional Committee. It also recommended that the Regional Committee adopt a resolution on the subject. Comments from the representatives as well as guidance of the Regional Committee will be a vital input in the process of refining the document before the final budget is submitted to the Executive Board for review at its 115th session in January 2005, and then to the Fifty-eighth World Health Assembly in May 2005.

SEA/RC57/8 - Outline of 11th general programme of work 2006-2015
World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia ( 2004-08-06 )
Abstract

The 11th General Programme of Work (GPW) of WHO will cover a ten-year period from 2006 to 2015 and will be a unique document in many respects. The time-frame of the GPW will permit taking a long-term strategic look at the world and the place of health rather than a short-term status of public health. The GPW would use the tools for ‘futures’ thinking and action, involving forecasting trends, exploring alternative scenarios on the future of health, establishing preferred ‘futures’ and shared visions, and formulating strategies to achieve the visions in the light of the scenarios. The 11th GPW will act as a roadmap laying out different routes toward health. It will benefit from other visionary work such as Health for All and the Millennium Development Goals, as well as concrete issues documented in the recent World Health Reports, publications by the World Bank and other partners and academic institutions. The development of the GPW will involve WHO staff at all levels, as well as consultation with Member States, partners, and external ‘futures’ and other experts. A draft outline of the GPW has been prepared by WHO headquarters, envisaging that the document will comprise 3 Parts and 6 Chapters, where each chapter will include the objective and the rationale for the chapter. It is expected that the structure of the document may undergo changes as the work progresses. WHO headquarters has also proposed the main milestones and dates for different stages in the development of the GPW. The working paper sets out briefly the historical perspective and events leading up to the initial general programmes of work. The working paper was discussed by the CCPDM at its 41st meeting, held in July 2004, which took note of the progress of work and the preliminary draft outline of its broad contents. The subject is submitted to the Regional Committee for noting the progress in the preparation of WHO’s 11th General Programme of Work covering the period 2006-2015. The comments of the Regional Committee will be conveyed to WHO headquarters so that these are kept in view as the process of formulation of the GPW proceeds from stage to stage.
