Procurement: Responding to covid-19 – Seventh webinar – EHMA and covid-19 30 June 2020
It's time for webinars! Join EHMA for our next webinar in the COVID-19: from viral to containment, "Procurement: Responding to COVID-19". The event will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, June 30, at 12.00 PM Brussels time.
The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting global health product supply chains, affecting key materials and ingredients, finished health products, logistics, shipping and more. Procurement is critical to support frontline services to provide care to patients and service users. Procurement offices have been working under increasing pressure in order to manage the demand for essential goods to support the services through this crisis. For example, the global demand for PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and other supplies is unprecedented. Innovation in procurement (IP) can bridge this gap as it is not only about innovation for innovation. It wants to help deliver what an organization needs at the right time and at a price that is affordable if the market can’t provide that. How can IP then help concretely in better addressing the COVID-19 challenge?
