HRP Programme Budget for 2010–2011
(Including Medium-term Strategic Plan for 2010–2015)
The UNDP/UNFPA/WHO/World Bank Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction (HRP) is the research arm of the Department of Reproductive Health and Research (RHR). HRP is a cosponsored Special Programme which serves as a global resource for the generation, conduct, coordination and synthesis of research to identify interventions, technologies and the knowledge necessary to improve sexual and reproductive health. Its research is used to establish global norms and standards, and to develop tools and guidelines that address evolving needs and problems in sexual and reproductive health. In pursuit of fostering global research to improve sexual and reproductive health, HRP invests in strengthening research capacity through various grants and support to national research.
The Medium-term Strategic Plan (MTSP) 2010–2015 outlines the Department of Reproductive Health and Research’s vision and business plan, which take into account the goals and targets from the Programme of Action adopted at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) the revised framework of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the action areas of the WHO Global Reproductive Health Strategy, the WHO Strategic Objectives, and the vision expressed by the current Director-General. This MTSP includes the Programme of Work for the biennium 2010–2011, as an annex, complete with indicators for assessing progress and setting targets. The priority areas reflected are an outcome of extensive consultative processes that have involved all WHO regions. The section of the proposed Programme of Work and Indicators is specific to products and activities generated by HRP, within the Department of Reproductive Health and Research.
