Abstract: 1. The WHO Programme Budget for the 2016-2017 biennium is the second of the three biennial budgets to be formulated within the Twelfth General Programme of Work, 2014–2019. It has been developed on the basis of a bottom-up approach for the definition of priority programmes in the broader context of WHO reform aimed at building in the African Region an Organization that is more effective, efficient, responsive, accountable and transparent. 2. This document contains the regional perspectives for implementation of the Programme Budget 2016-2017 in the African Region. It outlines key priorities, lessons learnt, budget distribution, guiding principles and roles and responsibilities of Member States and the WHO Secretariat. Details of budget figures are provided in the Annex. 3. The World Health Assembly has adopted the overall WHO Programme Budget for the 2016-2017 biennium, totalling US$ 4384.9 million. The African Region has been allocated a share of US$ 1 162.3 million (26.5%), which represents an increase of US$ 42.3 million (3.8%) compared with the approved budget for the 2014-2015 biennium. 4. The adopted bottom-up approach for the priority-setting process led to some shifts in budget allocations across programmes in many countries. Despite increases noted in some programmes, the distribution of the budget across priorities still indicates an unbalanced budget. Thus, Members States and the WHO Secretariat need to intensify efforts to mobilize resources to better fund these regional priorities in order to offset limitations in the budget. 5. The Regional Committee noted and adopted this document
