SEA/RC56/16 - Detailed work plans for programme budget 2004-2005
AbstractThe Regional Committee, at its 55th session last year, reviewed and endorsed the Proposed Programme Budget 2004-2005 and the Region-specific Part II thereof. Based on this, the Programme Budget for 2004-2005 has been elaborated into detailed work plans. The Country, Regional Office/Intercountry Programme (ICP-I) and Supplementary Intercountry Programme (ICP-II) Work Plans for 2004-2005 have been prepared in line with a uniform strategic framework for the Organization, within the context of an integrated programme budget reflecting One WHO, using a logical framework approach for result-based management of WHO collaborative programmes. Significant participation by, and inputs from, the Member Countries were taken into consideration in formulating the WHO country/intercountry programmes, through detailed consultations among national counterparts, the WHO Country Offices and the Regional Office. In order to maximize such participation and inputs from the Member Countries, particularly in the formulation of the supplementary intercountry programme, a High-Level Task Force established by the Regional Director ensured intensive collaboration in the preparation of the work plans. In accordance with the decision of the 51st session of the Regional Committee (1998), the Consultative Committee for Programme Development and Management (CCPDM) had assumed the responsibility for reviewing and noting of the Country and ICP-II detailed plans of action (work plans). The 36th meeting of CCPDM, in 1999, recommended that the work plans for the Regional Office/Intercountry programme (ICP-I) may also be submitted to the CCPDM. Accordingly, the Country Work Plans, the Work Plans for Regional Office/ICP (ICP-I) and Supplementary Intercountry Programme (ICP-II) for 2004-2005 were submitted to the 40th meeting of the CCPDM for its review and noting. The observations and recommendations of the 40th CCPDM are now placed before the Regional Committee for its consideration. The attention of the 40th CCPDM was also drawn to the World Health Assembly Resolution WHA51.31 relating to regular budget allocation to regions and the financial impact of implementing the resolution on the regions. Any comments from the Regional Committee on this will be taken into account in the evaluation to be presented to the Executive Board in January 2004. The CCPDM reviewed this issue thoroughly, and its recommendations are placed before the Regional Committee for its consideration. The full report of the 40th CCPDM is also placed before the Regional Committee as a separate document (SEA/PDM/Meet.40/13).
