Supply Annual Report 2016

Supply Annual Report 2016: Fit-for-future

In 2016, UNICEF procured $3.519 billion in supplies and services for children in 147 countries and areas. Partnerships, competition, and strategic procurement delivered price reductions for vaccines and other supplies, that saved $588.2 million for governments and donors.

Throughout 2016, UNICEF’s focus on creating healthy markets for life-saving commodities yielded results in health, education, protection and social inclusion for every child. Supply is also a strategic activity towards achieving economic and environmental sustainability. 

The Report features insights into an essential component of national health systems:  vaccines. In seven decades of procurement, no other commodity compares in terms of scale, impact and lessons learned. In 2016, UNICEF procured vaccines reaching 45 per cent of the world’s children under 5.

The report’s breakdown of key commodity groups and services and detailed annexes identifying suppliers, service providers and procurement value is a useful information source.
