Our staff participated in the virtual Global Health Supply Chain Summit, November 17-19, 2020, contributing to a rich exchange of ideas and lessons learned on preparedness, response and recovery, including COVID-19. Our speakers represented teams and partnerships that, despite many challenges related to COVID-19, maintained a regular supply of public health commodities and provided critical emergency response. In addition to having three presentations (Angola, Nigeria and global), our country programs in Eswatini, Nigeria and South Sudan were finalists for the grand prize.
