Olivia Reyes is a senior associate at Rabin Martin in the U.S., and has been immersed in supply chain projects since 2011. As a product innovation specialist with a focus on reproductive and maternal health, the IAPHL listserv has increased her knowledge of logistics considerations for new product development, and for market assessment and introduction strategies.
Olivia works in partnership with public and private sector organizations to deliver innovative solutions that get life-saving products to the last mile. For example, she is currently involved in supporting the national scale up of the Informed Push Model in Senegal, which uses pioneering methods that incorporate private sector partnerships, task shifting, and the use of performance-based contracts to ensure that women have access to a full range of contraceptive methods.
IAPHL continues to help her stay abreast of changes that occur in the field, and it provides incomparable access to global frontline perspectives. The learning opportunities from monthly discussions and recommended resources are fantastic, and it provides a great sense of community among a far-reaching network of professionals.
