Description: Programmatic and financing reforms continue to strengthen the Organization’s planning, budgeting and financing cycle towards more effective and efficient delivery of Member State-agreed outputs and to contribute to improved health outcomes. The key outcomes of programmatic reforms are: (i) needs-driven priority-setting, result definition and resource allocation aligned to the delivery of results; (ii) improvement of the delivery model at the three levels of the Organization to better support Member States; (iii) adequate and aligned financing to support strategic focus; and (iv) transparent reporting of results delivery and use of resources. The attached working paper describes the progress made over the past years in the programmatic reform areas at the global and regional levels. The High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting held in the WHO Regional Office in New Delhi from 29 June to 2 July 2015 reviewed the attached working paper and made the following recommendations: Actions by Member States (1) Continue to closely involve the Secretariat in the planning process for Programme Budget 2016–2017 to identify tangible results for WHO collaborative work which will be peer-reviewed from 21–23 July 2015; (2) Consider allocation of resources to the already identified priority areas to the extent possible, 70–80%, while finalizing the 2016–2017 country workplans; and (3) Consider providing adequate attention and resources to the regional flagship initiatives at country level. Actions by WHO (1) Ensure linkages among the flagship areas, and country as well as global priority areas as much as possible; and (2) Revise the working paper on programmatic reform incorporating the inputs from the discussions at the HLP meeting. The revised working paper and other recommendations of the HLP are submitted to the Sixty-eighth Session of the Regional Committee for consideration.
