Review of the membership and terms of reference of the programme subcommittee
AbstractThe WHO Regional Committee for Africa was established in accordance with the Constitution of the World Health Organization1 which guides the Regional Committee and its work as an integral part of the WHO. The Constitution also guides the interface between the Regional Committee and the work of the Regional Office. Resolution WHA33.17 further elaborated on the relationships. 2. At its twenty-fifth session in September 1975, the WHO Regional Committee for Africa by Resolution AFR/RC25/R10 established the first 12-member Programme Budget Subcommittee. This Subcommittee conducted a preliminary analysis of the 1978-1979 Programme Budget and reported at the twenty-sixth session of the Committee. The duties of the Subcommittee were ephemeral and it was dissolved. 3. In 1977, another 12-member Programme Budget Subcommittee was constituted by Decision 77/8 at the twenty-seventh session of the Regional Committee for a two-year period. The Subcommittee was to examine and analyse the proposed Programme Budget, participate in the Regional programme meetings, and draw the attention of the Regional Committee to questions that required consideration in plenary session.
