Trends and Observations: Maintaining maternal, newborn and child health commodity supply in the time of Covid-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting global health supply chains including production and logistics. Maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) products are produced in several countries that have been impacted by the outbreak and therefore are facing significant challenges to maintain production and export of essential MNCH commodities. To monitor this impact, the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project is working closely with suppliers and partners. This overview presents the information collected to date and trends for potential challenges and constraints on the global supply of MNCH commodities due to COVID-19.
