National Consultant to assess the impact of COVID-19 on the healthcare supply chain in Ukraine

1.  UNDP aims to provide support to the Government of Ukraine by assessing the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the healthcare supply chain and is looking for a qualified consultant to implement the assessment.


This main objective of this assignment is to assess the impact of COVID-19 on the healthcare supply chain in Ukraine in collaboration with WHO and explore opportunity for strengthening sustainability and to provide policy recommendations and multisectoral risk mitigation strategies.


The Consultant will be responsible for conducting the following activities in order to achieve the overall goal of the assignment:

  • Develop or propose an existing methodology that is tailored to Ukraine for assessment of the impact of COVID-19 on the healthcare supply chain, managed by State-owned Enterprise Medical Procurement of Ukraine, international specialized organisations and the donor technical assistance (i.e. Global Fund, USAID).
  • Conduct an assessment based on the methodology with a detailed (and where possible statistical inference) analysis of the data.
  • Review how to strengthen sustainability within the healthcare supply chain system of Ukraine
  • Prepare a report, a brief and a PowerPoint presentation in English and Ukrainian on the findings. The structure of the report should be proposed by the consultant and approved by UNDP and reflect the findings of the analysis. The report should not only identify problematic issues but should also capture potential positive strategies and approaches that have worked – contributing to sustainability of the health supply chains so that these could be subsequently replicated/scaled up in the future and in the case of other pandemics.
  • Develop policy recommendations for improving the healthcare supply chain to make it more robust, sustainable and enduring. A special emphasis of the recommendations should fall on preventive and mitigation actions for risks that arise from the appearance of sudden epidemiological jeopardies and the ensuing impediments.
