Supply Annual Report 2017

Supply Annual Report 2017: Sustainable Access

In 2017, UNICEF procured $3.46 billion in supplies and services for children in 150 countries and areas. Partnerships, competition, and strategic procurement contributed to price reductions for vaccines and other supplies, saving $394.6 million for governments and donors.

Throughout the year, UNICEF’s focus on delivering sustainable access to life-saving commodities yielded results in health, education, protection and social inclusion. While uninterrupted and reliable supply addressed a wide range of needs for children and their families, strategic procurement and logistical approaches also contributed to social, economic and environmental sustainability. This was achieved through collaborations with industry, governments, partners and beneficiaries, and a dedicated and agile professional community in the UNICEF supply function.

The report breaks down key commodity groups and services, with detailed annexes identifying suppliers, service providers and procurement value.
