It fights against the infectious diseases that affect developing countries and is currently present in about fifteen countries (mainly in West Africa and South-East Asia, China, Bangladesh, Lebanon, Haiti, Brazil).It offers a specific model based on a long history of expertise in clinical biology and a comprehensive approach to public health issues.The mission of Fondation Mérieux is to contribute to global health by strengthening the local capacities of developing countries to reduce the impact of infectious diseases on vulnerable populations. Its action is based on four main priorities: clinical biology laboratories, collaborative research programs, training and exchange of knowledge, support to international solidarity projects specifically concerning Mothers & Children.Since it was created, Fondation Mérieux has given priority to opening and partnering, initiating and leading a major international scientific network. It acts as a catalyst in both local and international initiatives with the same objective of improving public health including infection prevention and quality of care.The program objective is to build capacity to detect and respond to infectious disease outbreaks through laboratory strengthening in Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. The focus will be on laboratory systems. Indeed, when strengthening laboratories, working only at facility level will have an impact which could rapidly be compromised if laboratories are not linked into a network allowing supervision, mentoring, support, equipment maintenance and calibration, data management solutions, sample transportation and surveillance. The consortium is thus proposing an assessment of human (H) and veterinary (V) laboratory systems, with the development of a national plan of action at system level. Following this report, a one-week intensive training on what is practically a laboratory system, a laboratory network and how to maximize the use of resources and improve systems in a sustainable way will be held. In order to reach its objective, the consortium will reinforce the national workforce, the quality management system (H and V), the data management and the supervision and control of laboratories.Human laboratory and IT strengthening activities will be conducted in all 3 countries, while veterinary strengthening activities will only occur in Cambodia and Laos.                                                                                                                                                                                    Position :He will be in charge of the project management and will interact with all the stakeholders and will be responsible for the good management of the project.
