About this event
The ongoing pandemic is demonstrating the importance of supply chains and logistics in the distribution of healthcare resources. The lack of resilience and agility of these systems has contributed to limited and unbalanced availability of critical resources, leading to the shortage and wastage of resources in different parts of the world. The 2021 Humanitarian Forum will focus on such disparities as well as policies and operational solutions to reduce them.
