UNOPS is an operational arm of the United Nations, supporting the successful implementation of its partners’ peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world. Our mission is to help people build better lives and countries achieve sustainable development.

UNOPS provides health infrastructure, procurement and fund management services to our partners (Governments, UN organizations, International Financial Institutions, Funds) in some of the world’s most challenging environments. From constructing hospitals, to procuring pharmaceuticals or medical equipment, UNOPS is working to deliver sustainable health outcomes for millions of people.

In recent years, the demand for health related services from our partners has increased significantly and this has translated into an equivalent increase in the procurement volume of health related goods and services, which since 2019 has totalled over $400 million in pharmaceuticals, medical devices, medical and laboratory equipment and consumables.

In line with the framework agreement signed with the Government of Mexico, UNOPS supports different government collaboration initiatives aimed at fighting corruption and transparency in public management, as well as exercises aimed at strengthening government actions in the areas of procurement, infrastructure and management of high-impact projects in Mexico. The work requires strategic and operational perspectives, resource management ensuring transparency, effectiveness and efficiency that promotes the development and continuous strengthening of internal management in order to ensure high quality results, according to the needs of the partner in Mexico.

The objective of the project is to support the Government of Mexico in its effort to guarantee the right to health to the greatest number of inhabitants through the planning and management of the consolidated purchase of medicines (period 2021-2024), as well as assistance in the development of system profiles and model of consolidated purchase of medicines for the health sector of the Government of Mexico. This project has 2 main components:
  • COMPONENT 1 (Transparent Procurement of Pharmaceuticals) - Management of multi-year consolidated purchase of medicines (supply of needs during the period 2022-2024).
  • COMPONENT 2 (National Capacity Building) - Strengthening and training in the consolidated model for the purchase of medicines for the health sector of the Government of Mexico.
