Strengthening national supply chains
Shaping the future of global public goods and realizing children’s rights through efficient, sustainable and mature public supply chains.
UNICEF works to support governments in their efforts to setup and manage agile, cost- effective and sustainable end-to-end supply chains- from suppliers to recipients and beneficiaries –to ensure that all children, adolescent and nursing mothers benefit from unrestricted access to quality, safe, equitable and affordable healthcare and other essential services.
Strong national supply chains are critical cornerstones of well-functioning public welfare systems and a driving force toward the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and advancement of the 2030 Global Health Security agenda. The COVID-19 outbreak has shed light on the importance of empowering governments to build and manage efficient public systems that are resilient to shocks and able to respond to surging needs in the fastest delays.
Adapting to global development trends and growing country demands for technical assistance, we lend our expertise in forecasting, market-influencing, data analytics, resource mobilization, institutional and human resource capacity-development with a view to support governments throughout their strengthening journey and help them find long-lasting solutions to bridge the gaps in access to quality child health, nutrition, education and other public services. Creating synergies with civil society and development stakeholders and leveraging the strengths, competencies, technological assets and innovation capacity of the private sector have been pivotal to providing a coordinated response to national needs, develop quality medicines and vaccines, keep prices affordable and reach the last mile.
