Supply Chain Partnerships to Enhance Family Planning

Enhancing Operational Efficiency to Meet Demands for Sexual and Reproductive Health Supplies.

HELP Logistics is thrilled to announce the successful completion of a four-month strategy consulting project with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Supply Chain Management Unit (SCMU) in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Kühne Logistics University, and Deloitte.

Co-funded by the Gates Foundation and the Kühne Foundation, our journey began with a comprehensive assessment across six strategic facets: capabilities, processes, technology, data, people, and governance. This assessment was instrumental in leveraging SCMU's existing strengths to meet the increasing global demands for sexual and reproductive health services.

Working with SCMU, we developed a forward-thinking strategy to support organizational transformation and realize its vision and value proposition. This initiative strengthens SCMU's impact and lays the groundwork for BMGF's significant commitment of up to USD 100 million to procure and deliver life-saving family planning supplies.

Commenting on this project's strategic impact, Jonas Stumpf, Director of Global Programs at HELP Logistics, said, "Through strategic collaboration and innovative thinking, we are empowering organizations like UNFPA to transform their supply chains and deliver critical health supplies where they're needed most. This project exemplifies our commitment to driving tangible impact in humanitarian logistics and global health."

David Sarley, Senior Programme Officer in the Women’s Health Innovation team at the Gates Foundation adds, “We see the work undertaken by HELP Logistics, KLU and Deloitte as a cornerstone of our investment in UNFPA. Working closely with SCMU, they have amplified and enabled SCMU’s continuous improvement efforts.”
