Drawing on its excellent reputation and true to its universal values, the Institut Pasteur has an ambitious international policy. Its Department of International Affairs is responsible for animating and developing the Institut Pasteur International Network, particularly by coordinating major programs that meet current global health challenges. It is also in charge of developing new corporate and scientific partnerships to boost the worldwide presence of the Institut Pasteur and help to address human health challenges.
To meet current global health challenges, the Institut Pasteur is developing and coordinating major international projects, run mainly in conjunction with members of the Institut Pasteur International Network.
As well as furthering knowledge, these programs help to increase local skills, build up equipment, and assist health authorities in drawing up recommendations to improve the care of populations on a long-term basis.
Pathogenic agents are serious global challenges that can only be tackled effectively through cooperation. Members of the Institut Pasteur International Network work with local stakeholders in countries where they conduct their research, public health and education missions. They also develop numerous partnerships with international research centers and have the support of the world’s major funding bodies.
