GNC Technical Alliance Conversations with UNICEF Supply Division on adaptations made in light of COVID-19

By Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) Technical Alliance (formerly GTAM) on 6 October 2020

As part of the GNC Technical Alliance's work in relation to COVID-19, the team has been receiving a number of programme questions from the field on how programmes should respond and adapt in light of the pandemic. A number of these questions have related to issues with supplies and supply chain planning. In this podcast we reflect on some of these key questions that programmers had with the supply chain division at UNICEF. We are honoured to have Alison Fleet, Technical Specialist for UNICEF Supply Division, Mamadou Diallou, Supply Chain Specialist for UNICEF Supply Division and Grainne Moloney, Nutrition Specialist for the Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office, UNICEF share some of their insights.
