Scientific Officer Audrey joined the FIND malaria programme in to support the coordination of the malaria rapid diagnostic test RDT evaluation programme, as well as to update and disseminate RDT training materials for malaria.
She led several studies on RDT availability and transport and storage conditions in malaria endemic countries, and contributed to the development of a safe and easy to use RDT blood transfer device.
Audrey later moved to the Other Neglected Diseases programme and is currently managing several projects for Leishmaniasis test of cure for visceral leishmaniasis, LAMP assay for Leishmaniasis and following up on specific Evolution of competencies of logistics and activities for Chagas disease.
She also completed a public health diploma in health education and a secondary university diploma in epidemiology.
Senior Logistics Officer Flavio has over ten years of experience in logistics and sourcing in an international environment.
He recently worked in New York as a logistics advisor and in Paris as a project coordinator for international humanitarian organizations. Prior to this, Flavio worked for Oxfam and Action Contre la Faim, among other non-governmental organizations, responding to large-scale emergencies and supporting public health, nutrition and water and sanitation programmes in countries including Haiti, Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Pakistan and Nigeria.
He began his logistics career with a shipping and forwarding company in Italy. He is responsible for organizing the IVD and specimen bank logistics and is in charge of overseeing the shipping process, in compliance with country regulations, for all FIND projects.

Devy has over 7 years of experience in global health, infectious diseases research and project management, which has helped shape her belief that fostering partnerships and relying on local knowledge improves health outcomes.
Her work has included research in rotavirus vaccine effectiveness with partners in Bangladesh and Zambia; coordinating partner selection and designing a stability testing program for the development of a new rotavirus vaccine in the US; supporting field lab logistics and health systems strengthening activities during the Ebola Outbreak in Sierra Leone; and managingclinical trials on HIV treatment and prevention in Uganda.
Devy holds an M. Born in the Philippines and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Devy enjoys reading, hiking, snowboarding, and practicing kung fu.
Scientific Officer Dr Camille Escadafal trained as a biochemistry engineer at the INSA Toulouse, France and worked 3 years as a research engineer at the Pasteur Institute in Senegal where she was in charge of developing and standardizing diagnostic techniques for arboviral infections.
Following her PhD, Camille joined the Laboratory for Urgent Biological Threats at the Institut Pasteur as coordinator of the human virology activities of the MediLabSecure project, a European project aiming at creating a laboratory network focusing on emerging viruses in the Mediterranean region.
At the Institut Pasteur, she also coordinated a project on the development of point-of-care tests for epidemic-prone viruses by using isothermal amplification technologies and she took part in international field missions for diagnostics support during the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Zika outbreak in Brazil.1 EVOLUTION OF COMPETENCIES OF LOGISTICS AND SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGERS Danuta KISPERSKA-MOROŃABSTRACT One new concept emerging in current business reality is a .
Evolution of competencies of logistics and supply chain managers. By. Abstract. One new concept emerging in current business reality is a virtual supply chain. This paper indicates in what way a virtual supply chain, that is subject to constant changes, influences the requirements for competencies of managerial staff in that specific business.
The evolution of logistics and Supply Chain Management (SCM) in the s can be traced back to “physical distribution management” in the s when there was no coordination among the various functions of an organization, and each was committed to attain its own goal.
