Hälso- och sjukvårdspolitik


WHO is the United Nations specialised agency on health matters and is tasked with the leadership and coordination of international health efforts. According to the constitution, "the objective of WHO shall be; The attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health", where health is defined as "a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity". WHO shall be the leading norm setting actor for health and medical care policies and to support member governments in implementing the best possible health care policy. WHO has the mandate to act as the UN coordinating authority for global health. Strategy for Sweden's cooperation with the World Health Organisation (WHO) 2016-2019 is the basis for the Swedish collaboration with WHO. It gives the mandate to the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs (MHSA) for the collaboration with WHO and the responsibility for coordinating Sweden's implementation of the strategy in collaboration with Ministry of Foreign Affairs MFA. Further MHSA has the responsibility for assessing, commenting and approve WHO's reporting. Sida's cooperation with the WHO is also guided by the Results strategy for global action on socially sustainable development 2014–2017. It is the Swedish Government's view that WHO, in light of its mandate, role and function as laid down in its constitution and General Program of Work 2014-2019 is of substantial importance to both developing and developed countries. WHO's strategy document ”Global Program of Work " 2014-2019 and Programme Budget for 2016-201 are the basis for the Swedish core voluntary contribution (CVC) channelled through Sida. WHO's total budget for 2016-2017 is 4 384,9 MUSD (about 37 billion SEK). Sida intend to support WHO with SEK 200 million for the two years as an un-earmarked core voluntary contribution. This is 41 % less than previous period (2014-2015) and due to a decreased funding to the Results strategy for global action on socially sustainable development 2014–2017. In addition Sida is preparing research cooperation for the same period with 121 MUSD which is a cut of 30%. In total Sida’s support to WHO will decrease with 198 MSEK for the period (or 38,5 %). The volume of the voluntary contribution has been consulted with the MHSA and MFA and Sida has informed WHO about the level of support. Sida’s un-earmarked support is about 0,5% of the total budget. However this modest contribution is seen as of particular importance for WHO to reach a fully financed budget as it gives flexibility to shift funds between the programmes based on their needs. The reform process is expected to lead to less ear-marking and thereby enable WHO to reach the targets. During the previous agreement Sida earmarked 5 MSEK to the IHP+ programme to secure a fully funded budget, on the same time a "flexibility clause " in the agreement was introduced which enabled WHO to shift the Sida funds from IHP+ if the programme received funding from other sources. The reason for the earmarking was Sida's high priority for coordination issues at country level and wanted to secure the funding for this particular programme. Sweden has been/is a member of the IHP+ Steering committee SC (participant from Ministry for Foreign Affairs) and Sida been alternator. The participation in IHP+ SC is not linked to the earmarking of funds and Sweden will therefore continue having a seat in the SC. Sida will continue to follow the progress with the indicator (Outcome 4.1). During the preparation of the next agreement (2018-2019) Sida will decide if it is seen necessary to include earmarking again for securing the work of the programme. The Framework agreement that was prepared in connection with previous support will be used. It regulates financial and management aspects and to this agreement is tied two templates for grant agreements for different types of aid modalities ; Annex I voluntary contribution and Annex II Pr

Multilateralt kärnstöd

Multilateralt kärnstöd är icke-öronmärkt stöd som går till en multilateral organisations (såsom olika FN-organ, EU, Världsbanken, etc.) verksamhet i sin helhet, vilket innebär att organisationens styrelse (där Sverige ofta sitter med) beslutar hur medlen ska användas. Hit räknas även det statliga garantikapital som utställs till de multilaterala utvecklingsbankerna.
