UNICEF Supply Division procures on behalf UNICEF’s ongoing programmatic activities and also on behalf of governments and other partners. UNICEF works on ensuring the global availability of essential supplies through positively influencing markets including for immunization supplies, essential medicines, water and sanitation, education and other key products.
