Abstract
On March 2, 2005, ministers of developing and developed countries and heads of multilateral and bilateral development institutions, meeting in Paris, issued a resolution to reform the ways they deliver and manage international aid. They established five principles to guide aid participants: • Ownership. Developing countries set their own strategies for poverty reduction, improve their institutions and tackle corruption
• Alignment. Donor countries align behind these objectives and use local systems • Harmonization. Donor countries coordinate with host countries to simplify procedures and share information to avoid duplication • Results. Developing countries and donors shift focus to development results and results get measured • Mutual Accountability. Donors and partners are accountable for development The United States is one of more than 150 nations and donor organizations to endorse the resolution, known as the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is sponsoring a simultaneous, multinational review of the implementation of the Paris Declaration. This report reviews implementation within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and is part of the larger review of implementation by the U.S. government as a whole.
