dc.description.abstract[Overview]. During 2013, PAHO continued its role in technical cooperation by: providing leadership on matters critical to health and engaging in partnerships; stimulating the generation, dissemination and application of valuable knowledge; setting norms and standards and promoting their implementation; articulating ethical and evidence-based policy options; catalyzing change and building sustainable institutional capacity; and, monitoring the health situation and assessing trends. In this regard, the Organization engaged in raising advocacy and awareness, and resource mobilization to address the regional collective public health priorities as set in the PAHO Strategic Plan and the Health Agenda for the Americas 2008-2017, while addressing the global mandates set out in the WHO Global Programme of Work. 2013 marked an important milestone as PAHO completed the implementation of its 2008-2013 Strategic Plan, the first Plan to have been fully implemented using the Organization’s Result-Based Management Framework. During 2013, particular attention was placed on pushing towards the achievement of the healthrelated Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), especially MDG 4: reduce child mortality; MDG 5: improve maternal health; and, MDG 6: combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases. In line with the regional and global mandates, the Organization also continued working with Member States in building national core capacity for the International Health Regulations (IHR), implementing the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), and promoting multi-sectoral policies and actions to address the NCDs and their risks factors in line with the recommendations of the UN High Level Meeting on NCDs.en_US
