The Public Health Interventions Research Program conducts a wide range of projects focused on the evaluation of strategies to prevent infectious diseases. We collaborate extensively within the Kirby Institute, with our Australian partners and with international organisations.
We are committed to research that benefits the health of disadvantaged populations in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. Much of our work also has a strong capacity building component. We equip our partners with the skills and expertise to respond to their local epidemics.
We are currently involved in projects related to the control of HIV, human papillomavirus, chlamydia, gonorrhoea, tuberculosis, soil transmitted helminths, scabies and trachoma. We have large scale research projects in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Myanmar, South Africa, Vietnam, Timor-Leste, Fiji and the Solomon Islands.
