Background

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life, as envisaged by 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The UNDP is on the ground in more than 170 countries and territories, working with governments and people on their own solutions, to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and a wide range of partners that can bring about results.

Recognising UNDP’s unique capacity as a health development partner and its proven track record in supporting public health institutions, the UNDP Health and Transparency Programme is currently partnered with the MoH of Ukraine to support the procurement of medicines and medical products on behalf of the Ukrainian State Medicines Programme. Besides procurement support services, the UNDP Health and Transparency Programme also consists of three major components directly linked to providing procurement services to the MoH. These include the establishment of the transparent, efficient, sustainable and accountable public procurement system in the healthcare sector, strengthening the capacity of the national Coordination Council on HIV/TB and ensuring the protection of human rights of key populations affected by HIV and TB. The UNDP Health and Transparency Programme is also working on the implementation of supply chain innovation and digital technologies to contribute towards the reduction of corruption in Ukraine. Also, as of 2019, UNDP Ukraine will be boosting its efforts to promote sustainable procurement in the health sector as a future direction and priority moving forward.

UNDP aims is to introduce international practices and digitalize the process of public procurement in a more efficient, modern and transparent way.

UNDP, jointly with the Ministry of Health, developed the terms of reference (TOR) for digital platform “Management of medicines and medical products” (hereafter - “eStock”), which manages business processes and ensures traceability and transparency in areas of quantification, planning, procurement, distribution, redistribution and medicine supply. In cooperation with the USAID-funded Safemed project, UNDP is committed to support the developing the eStock platform. Moreover, the system will be used by the MoH, Central Procurement Agency, Regional Healthcare Departments, Medical Institutions and other entities responsible for the stock management and delivery of medicines to minimize administrative costs, time and recourses.
