In order to expand the global supply base for improving access to quality reproductive health commodities in developing countries, UNFPA China in collaboration with the Ministry of Commerce of China organized a capacity-building workshop for Chinese suppliers in May 2021.
The workshop mobilized internal and external resource persons from UNFPA China Office, UNFPA Asia and the Pacific Regional Office, UNFPA Procurement Service Branch, the World Health Organization Geneva Office, and the National Medical Products Administration. 

It shared detailed information on analysis of UNFPA global procurement data, performance of Chinese manufacturers, international quality standards for health products, and case studies of UNFPA's prequalification and procurement processes.
During the workshop, a network of national consultants composed of successful suppliers to UN procurement was also set up, which will help implement future capacity building activities.
