Located in 26 countries on five continents, the Institut Pasteur International Network (RiiP) includes 33 institutions, which are united by shared values and missions for the benefit of populations. It is a unique model for health cooperation and, in addition to its structures, brings together a human and scientific community that focuses on both local and international health priorities. Present in numerous endemic areas, the RIIP has, time and time again, demonstrated its major role as a sentinel for emerging infectious diseases.
