Infections & immunity
We conduct cross-disciplinary research on the most important infectious diseases in PNG, focusing on respiratory and enteric infections.
Vector borne diseases
We conduct studies in order to understand and find new methods to diagnose, treat and prevent malaria, filariasis and other mosquito borne diseases.
Sexual & reproductive health
Our Mission is to conduct policy-relevant clinical, laboratory, qualitative and health systems research to improve the sexual and reproductive health of women and men in Papua New Guinea.
Population health & demography
An efficient, comprehensive and effective health system is an essential pre-requisite to good health in any country. Unfortunately, the health system in PNG is beset with many problems, including such things as deteriorating infrastructure, an aging workforce, unreliable national health information and the difficulties inherent in providing health care to rural and remote populations.
