Country Focus Initiative and Strengthening WHO Country Offices: An Update
Abstract1. The Country Focus Initiative of WHO aims at increasing the focus of its work on technical support to countries for the attainment of national and internationally-agreed goals such as the Millennium Development Goals. It is linked to the overall performance of the various programmes of the Organization, as operations at country level depend on the quality and strength of WHO presence. 2. The Country Focus Initiative consists of the Country Cooperation Strategies; adjusting competencies and capacities of country teams; effective functioning of WHO country offices; coherent programmatic and technical support from regional offices and headquarters (of WHO); information, knowledge management and working with United Nations and other development partners. It should be noted that the first objective stated in the Strategic orientations for WHO action in the African Region, 2005–2009, strengthening WHO country offices, directly addresses the Country Focus Initiative.
