World Bank, UNFPA ongoing partnership to advance women's health 

A standard agreement is in place to make it easier for World Bank Group borrowers to procure reproductive health supplies through AccessRH.
The agreement dramatically simplifies the procurement process for countries implementing World Bank financed projects as well as streamlines invoicing, billing and financial reporting.
Countries can review specifications, select RH supplies from the online catalogue and place their orders directly with UNFPA's AccessRH.

UNFPA suppliers going green 

Since UNFPA launched its Green Procurement Strategy in 2013, one of the first objectives was to collaborate with suppliers in order to reduce the environmental impact of the UNFPA supply chain.

Two years later, UNFPA suppliers have proven that going green is not only possible, but also beneficial. This infographic shows some of the savings achieved by UNFPA suppliers over the last two years.
