Meeting: Launch of WHO’s financing dialogue
Geneva, Switzerland
24 June 2013
On 24 June, WHO met in Geneva with Member States and other contributors to embark on a financing dialogue.

The dialogue follows Member States’ agreement on WHO’s priorities for the coming years, focusing on areas where the Organization has a unique function or comparative advantage.    These priorities and the actions that WHO has committed to take to improve health outcomes for the world’s people are highlighted in the WHO Programme Budget for 2014-15.

The financing dialogue, which will bring together WHO’s contributors again at the end of November, aims to ensure this Programme Budget is fully funded.
:: for WHO to share additional information on the programming, budgeting, and financing of WHO’s 2014-15 Programme Budget;

:: for participants to discuss expectations for, and help shape, the financing dialogue process, including the second meeting planned for November 2013;

:: for participants to provide indications of how they are considering financing WHO and opportunities and challenges they face in securing predictable financing aligned with the priorities of WHO.
