Achieving better health for vulnerable communities in Australia and internationally by accelerating the translation of research, discovery and evidence into sustainable health solutions.

Programs Interdisciplinary health programs underpin our work: Maternal and Child Health, Disease Elimination, Behaviours and Health Risks, and the Expansion Programs (Health Security and Healthy Ageing).

Our unique approach to link medical research with public health action is what sets us apart. We translate knowledge from laboratory-based novel research and best-practice public health programs to address major global health problems.

International Operations
Whilst our head office is based in Melbourne, we have offices or representatives in Papua New Guinea, Myanmar, Lao PDR and China. We also have a range of activities underway in countries in Asia, the Pacific and Africa. More than a third of our staff are based overseas.

Education & Training

We provide training in laboratory and public health research at PhD, Honours and Postgraduate levels, and are a recognised provider of quality international health education and training courses.

Support Our Work

There are many ways to help our work: from supporting an appeal, to becoming a regular donor, to creating a fellowship to nurture a young scientist in their career path.
