UNICEF Supply Chain
Development and humanitarian supply chains are among the most complex in the world. Ensuring the delivery of supplies to children in situations of conflict, disaster or in hard to reach areas requires technical know-how, innovative solutions, collaboration, and financial resources.The UNICEF Supply Chain involves working with industry to develop more effective formulations of medicines and products for children whilst keeping prices at affordable and quality at international standards. Every link of the supply chain is essential in ensuring vital supplies reach children.
