Working in partnership for the children in the State of Palestine

Supplies and Tenders

Supplies are essential to fulfil children’s rights. Supporting child survival and development programmes around the world, UNICEF-procured supplies are critical in providing for children’s health, education and protecting them from abuse, exploitation, and neglect.

UNICEF procures and supplies over 5,000 products to address the needs of children.

As well as supporting UNICEF’s ongoing programmatic activities, the Supply function provides rapid supply response to emergencies.

UNICEF also procures and supplies essential commodities on behalf of governments and other partners. These procurement services can also include in-country logistics, capacity building, and project management.

Ensuring the global availability of essential supplies through influencing markets for life-saving commodities such as vaccines, essential medicines and health products, and implementing a range of supply chain models to ensure these supplies are delivered to children, are two overarching focuses.
