Kirby Institute Strategic Plan 2019–2023

The Kirby Institute Strategic Plan was launched in 2019 with the goal of ensuring that our Institute is the best possible position to respond to the many urgent questions and pressing issues that remain unsolved as we pursue our ultimate goal: a world free from infectious disease.

As we look to the near future, we will be taking what we’ve learnt and applying those insights and approaches to other infectious diseases and to a greater diversity of at-risk communities and populations. We will be building our capacity to discover, develop and implement interventions in our existing and emerging fields of infectious disease research.
