Tatiana Silva visits UNICEF division Supply in Copenhagen
Supplies are essential to fulfil children’s rights. Supporting child survival and development programmes around the world, UNICEF-procured supplies are critical in providing for children’s health, education and protecting them from abuse, exploitation, and neglect.
UNICEF procures and supplies over 5,000 products to address the needs of children.
In 2013, UNICEF procured $2.839 billion worth of supplies and services from all over the world, ensuring high quality and good value through fair and open procurement.
As well as supporting UNICEF’s ongoing programmatic activities, the Supply function provides rapid supply response to emergencies.
