Learner Stories

KUISSU TAGNE Aude Nicole is a clinical psychologist for International Medical Corps (IMC) in the far North of Cameroon since 2019. She is dynamic, warm, and loves a job that is well executed.   

Aude TAGNE conducts assessments in Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) for the IMC and supervises support activities and their implementation. In addition, she helps write projects and trains staff. One of her strengths is that while working in tough and challenging conditions she has been able to keep calm, so that she can help vulnerable people who are physically and mentally disabled. Once, she was able to help a 2-year-old girl with Meningitis who had lost the mobility of her legs and the ability to speak, by mobilizing all the resources at her disposal. Although it was quite tough, but with 6-months of perseverance and continued support, the girl was able to regain mobility. By managing these tough situations, she became capable of working in emergency situations.   

She became interested in supply chain when she realized that despite having budget allocated for mental health medicines, there were always shortages, which also affected the morale of health care staff. Now after doing the supply chain online course, she realizes that one of key issues for the shortage is the inability to procure correctly. She wants to address this in her career by systematically developing procurement plans and instating better downstream supply chains.  

“If I could change one thing about my workplace, it would be the WORK CLIMATE,” says KUISSU TAGNE Aude Nicole.   

When asked about the gap between academia and public health supply chain jobs, she believes the gap is in practice in the sense that the modules taught at the university do not match 70% of what is found on the field. Therefore, she believes that the university system should be, and their modules should be adapted to the realities of the field.  

On her association with The Hive platform, she says, “The Hive platform can help me by continuing to organize training programs and keeping in touch with other specialists/students to allow experience sharing”
