Shanelle Hall is the Director of UNICEF Supply Division, the organization’s procurement and logistics headquarters in Copenhagen. She oversees UNICEF’s global supply activities and emergency supply response, with an annual expenditure approaching USD 3 billion. She is responsible for both the global availability and local delivery of essential supplies for children in over 150 countries. This is achieved through working with UNICEF programmes, cooperating with governments, and coordinating with UN agencies and other partners.
As the Supply Director, she has refocused attention on the procurement and delivery of essential strategic commodities, those that have proven most effective in child survival, and on the innovation of new products to solve child-related problems identified in the field. Previously, she was Chief of Immunization with Supply Division where she introduced the concept of 'vaccine security' as a means of ensuring a sustainable, uninterrupted supply of affordable, quality vaccines to the world’s poorest children.
Ms Hall has also travelled extensively in Africa and Asia. Prior to joining UNICEF, she worked for nine years in the private sector in the area of energy infrastructure development in a number of countries. She is a US national from Seattle, Washington.
