Principal Recipients with current Global Fund grants and approved funding can access quality-assured health products such as PPE through wambo.org, the Global Fund’s procurement tool.

The Global Fund encourages Principal Recipients to place orders as early as possible to avoid disruption in supply.
It should be noted that freight costs will appear high for PPE compared with earlier procurements as overall unit prices of PPE are at around half the levels of 2020, while freight costs are constant or even higher, related to the current international freight constraints.
