Proposed Programme Budget 2020-2021
AbstractThe Thirteenth General Programme of Work 2019–2023 (GPW13), approved by the Seventy-first World Health Assembly in May 2018, provides the strategic direction for the work of the Organization over the next five years. It outlines a clear vision to achieve the “triple billion” goals through three interconnected strategic priorities, by 2023: 1 billion more people benefiting from universal health coverage; 1 billion more people better protected from health emergencies; and 1 billion more people enjoying better health and well-being. The Programme Budget 2020–2021 is the first of two Programme Budgets that will serve to implement the Thirteenth General Programme of Work 2019–2023. This consultation document provides the following: An overview of the process for preparing the proposed high-level Programme Budget 2020–2021, including consultations with Member States on the strategic directions and priorities of each Region; Information and analysis of the prioritization results and feedback on the Thirteenth General Programme of Work impact framework targets based on consultations with Member States; An overall Budget indication by Major Office, and split by country and regional levels; and An outline of the next steps, including further consultations and opportunities for deliberations on the Programme of Work and budgets. The bottom-up country prioritization is the foundation and starting point of the development of the Programme Budget 2020–2021. As the next step, and based on the feedback from the Regional Committees, development of the country support plans as well as the priority setting for global public goods will lead to the fully elaborated and costed Programme Budget for consideration by the Executive Board in January 2019. The final proposal will be presented for approval to the Seventy-second World Health Assembly in May 2019.
