Abstract: 1. In 1998, the World Health Assembly adopted resolution 51.31 relating to Regular budget allocations to regions using a model which took into account certain country-specific criteria. 2. The implementation of this resolution was to be spread over three biennia, starting with biennium 2000–2001. 3. The resolution also recommended that the reduction for any region should not exceed 3% per year. 4. During implementation, the 3% reduction was only achieved during the first biennium. As a result of this resolution, the Regional Office for Africa benefited with a net increase of US$ 33 826 million, most of which was allocated to countries. 5. The resolution requested that the Director-General present a thorough evaluation of that model to the Fifty-seventh World Health Assembly. 6. In connection with this request, the HQ Secretariat has prepared the attached note for regional committees. 7. The Regional Committee is invited to review and comment on the document, “Regular Budget allocations to regions” as prepared by the HQ Secretariat. 8. Comments from the Regional Committee will be forwarded to the Director-General for incorporation in a final document to be presented to the Executive Board in January 2004.
