Supplies and Logistics

The Supply Community

© UNICEF/SD-2010

The UNICEF Supply community: 876 staff, representing 137 nationalities, located in 98 countries and 158 duty stations worldwide, including Supply Division headquarters and Supply hubs.

Ensuring the global availability and local delivery of supplies for children requires specialist knowledge and skills. A dedicated team of local and international staff with diverse expertise are strategically located around the world. They have expertise in procurement, contracting, logistics, freight handling, pharmacology, health product technology, quality control, financial services, logistics, engineering, human resources, construction, education and communications. Strengthening the supply community and encouraging knowledge sharing are important elements of our work. The learning and experience of others can transform our thinking and our work.
