Sharing evidence, knowledge and tools, to aid coordination and implementation
Hosted by UNICEF’s Supply Division, we convene member organisations and other stakeholders in global public health to coordinate supply chain efforts.
While the implementation of traceability systems has been identified by national regulatory authorities as a useful and efficient tool to combat falsification and the illicit distribution of medical products, only some countries have issued traceability regulations.
Global data standards such as GS1: these provide a harmonised framework for supply chain visibility to enable traceability and the safe passage of medicines through national supply chains.
The ISG’s role
Encouraging countries and organisations to adopt global standards, like GS1, and providing technical assistance to implement product traceability systems.
