Strong supply chains form the backbone of well-functioning health systems and are critical to providing frontline health workers with the medicines, health commodities and equipment they need to deliver health care services. With the support of donors such as Takeda Pharmaceutical Limited Company, the United Nations World Food Programme works in collaboration with other UN agencies, NGOs and Ministries of Health to help strengthen health supply chains by sharing tools, methodologies and best practices, leveraging its nearly six decades of experience in delivering food assistance in complex and remote environments. This workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to share and discuss case studies and learnings from partnerships and projects in the sphere of health supply chain capacity strengthening. The discussion will focus on uncovering the needs and success factors of capacity strengthening work, in order to shed light on current and future opportunities to build and promote efficient, effective and resilient supply chains.
