[Foreword]. On approving the Strategic Plan 2003-2007, for the first time in PAHO, the Member States identified priority thematic areas, countries, and population groups and asked me to take the necessary steps for the implementation of the Plan. From the very beginning, it was clear that fulfilling this mandate would require significant changes in program structure, resource allocation, and the structure and dynamic of the work of the secretariat, together with the adjustment of competencies and the expansion of partnerships. However, the specific financing to accomplish all this was not available.Therefore, the decision was made to institute a number of parallel processes in which constant communication and interchange would be maintained to facilitate mutual enrichment and guarantee the coherence of the outputs, while efficiently moving forward with existing resources. In 2003 closer regulatory policy relations were forged with the Member States, who decided to create the Working Group on “PAHO in the 21st Century” in order to study the regional scenarios and trends that are producing new demands in public health and emerging actors in the field of international technical cooperation, thus influencing PAHO’s expected roles and functions. At the same time, we presented a management strategy for implementing the Strategic Plan 2003-2007 to guide the development of the biennial program budgets, which are the operational expression that guarantees fulfillment of the Plan.
