Pandemic Supply Chain Network (PSCN)

Partners will build a pandemic-ready supply chain network, the Pandemic Supply Chain Network (PSCN), through global public-private collaboration that connects various organizations involved in an emergency supply chain operations to ensure timely delivery of critical health supplies to the people who need it most.

PSCN aims to:


  • Contribute to public sector, industry, and civil society outreach and consultation, and as such, provide input into WHO’s development of the disease commodity packages.


  • Operationalise a mechanism/multistakeholder platform to support coordination and visibility into production, availability, and strategic allocation of strategic commodities, services, and other critical resources essential to managing large outbreaks of international concern.




The new Pandemic Supply Chain Network, a collaboration between the World Health Organization and the World Economic Forum, has begun convening calls with 350 private sector organizations and 10 multilateral organizations to assess the market capacity and risk to global personal protection equipment production. The results of the assessment are expected Feb. 5.
