Medical supplies for procurement of COVID -19 related supplies, equipment and medicines, phase II
Procurement of COVID-19 related medical supplies, equipment, and medicines (Phase II)
UNDP supports the Government of Timor-Leste in the procurement of COVID 19-related supplies, equipment and medicines following the principle of best value-for-money, quality assurance, transparency, fairness, integrity and reliability.
UNDP works closely with Serviço Autónomo de Medicamentos e Equipamentos de Saúde (SAMES), the National Laboratory, and Department of Pharmacy of Ministry of Health in the procurement processes to guarantee the quality of medical supplies, devices and medicines procured and to improve the performance of national procurement and supply chain system.]
Timor-Leste continues to face multitude of immediate challenges in the health system and in particular the medical related supply chain, which have been exacerbated by the COVID-19.
In 2020, UNDP Timor-Leste was requested by the Government of Timor-Leste to manage the procurement of essential medical supplies, equipment and medicines to support the Government to effectively response to the Covid-19 and other medical related needs. The request was done due to the volatility of global medical supply chain, triggered by Covid-19 pandemic. Thus given its well-established procurement system and support UNDP was trusted to manage the health procurement during the challenging time on behalf of the Government.
As the global health supply chain continues to be affected by the pandemic and drawing from the positive experience and lessons learnt from the first health procurement project, the second request was received by UNDP to procure more medical supplies, equipment and medicines. It is expected with the well-established health procurement system, UNDP can support the Government of Timor-Leste in supplying high quality of medical supplies, medicines and equipment at reasonable prices and time period.
