Healthcare for all
Sustainable, inclusive and resilient health systems are critical to addressing global health challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
Throughout the pandemic, in every corner of the world, we've supported our partners' efforts to respond to and recover from the impacts of COVID-19.
Around the world, inequities in health prevent underserved populations from achieving their full potential. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exposed the vulnerability of health systems.
To better manage health emergencies and put us back on a path to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, health systems need quality infrastructure, reliable supply chains and workforces that are equipped with the latest advances in policy and practice.
At UNOPS, we believe that strong and resilient health systems can advance access to essential healthcare services. Quality infrastructure and sustainable supply chains are key to robust health systems equipped to deal with crises.
From working with governments to develop and improve public health procurement to ensuring critical infrastructure is in place to improve access to services, we are committed to supporting the UN's Our Common Agenda and building a healthier future for all.
