SEA/RC67/5 - Strategic resource allocation
AbstractAt the Sixty-sixth World Health Assembly in May 2013, Member States requested the Director-General to propose a new Strategic Resource Allocation methodology in WHO, starting with the development of the Programme Budget 2016–2017. The 134th Session of the Executive Board in January 2014 endorsed the proposal of the Director-General to establish a Working Group on Strategic Resource Allocation to provide guidance to the Secretariat in developing further the proposal for a new Strategic Resource Allocation methodology. Since then, a Working Group comprising Member States (one each selected to represent each of the regions) was formed to provide guidance to the Secretariat in developing the first draft of the proposal for a new methodology for Strategic Resource Allocation. The High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting held in the Regional Office in New Delhi, India, from 14 to 17 July 2014 reviewed the attached document and made the following recommendations: Action by Member States (1) Member States should provide timely inputs and follow-up on questionnaires and other communications to Maldives, member from the South-East Asia Region, on the Working Group on Strategic Resource Allocation. Actions by the WHO Regional Office (1) The Regional Office should facilitate a meeting on the sidelines whenever the information from the Working Group on Strategic Resource Allocation is available. Given the complexity and strategic importance of Strategic Resource Allocation, the Secretariat is to facilitate a face-to-face inter-sessional meeting when the information from the Working Group is available. This meeting could take place in conjunction with the meeting suggested under Agenda item 2.1 (Framework of engagement with non-State actors). (2) Communication on the Strategic Resource Allocation methodology should be facilitated among Member States. The working paper and the HLP recommendations are submitted to the Sixty-seventh Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.
