Presented during the 152nd Session of the Executive Committee.

Director’s Comments

In accordance with Financial Regulation 14.9 of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), I have the honor to present the Financial Report of the Pan American Health Organization for the financial reporting period 1 January 2012 through 31 December 2012. The Financial Statements and Notes to the Financial Statements have been prepared in compliance with International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) and PAHO’s Financial Regulations and Financial Rules.

Although PAHO has adopted an annual financial reporting period as stipulated in Financial Regulation 2.2, the budgetary period remains a biennium (Financial Regulation 2.1). Therefore, for the purposes of actual vs. budget comparisons in the Director’s Comments, the annual budget figures represent one half of the Biennial Program and Budget as an approximation of annual budgetary figures.
