Statement of Quota Contributions from Member States
Strategy for Increasing the Rate of Collection of Quota Assessments: In order to facilitate the knowledge and transparency of quota assessment and reporting to its Member States, the Secretariat is in the final stages of implementing a system which will provide access to the most current quota payment details and balances on both the PAHO Intranet and Internet. This will enable ad hoc discussions with government officials and allow both government officials and PAHO staff to review the status of collection of assessed contributions for PAHO and the Centers at any time.
