CLaudia Truppa

I am a Medical Doctor with a specialization in Infectious Diseases from the University of Florence and a Master of Science in Epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. With over a decade of experience as a humanitarian health professional, I have worked with a variety of organizations, including Médecins sans Frontières, UNICEF, and the International Committee of the Red Cross, in response to complex humanitarian emergencies in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Central America.

Throughout my journey, I have coordinated various health operations, ranging from primary healthcare to prehospital emergency care, from hospital care to physical rehabilitation, and from healthcare in detention to mental health and psycho-social support. I am committed to integrating implementation research into programmatic design to strengthen the evidence base for health interventions in fragile and conflict-affected settings. I have a keen interest in topics such as access to care for women and vulnerable groups, antimicrobial stewardship, and integrated care for non-communicable diseases in humanitarian emergencies.

As a PhD candidate at CRIMEDIM, I seek to contribute my field experience while acquiring new knowledge in disaster medicine and global health beyond the humanitarian sector. I am especially interested in using systems thinking methodologies to operationalize health systems' resilience in conflict.
