The Institut Pasteur has demonstrated its international vocation since its very creation

Our history

The Institut Pasteur has demonstrated its international vocation since its very creation.

The first Institut Pasteur outside of France was set up by Albert Calmette in Saigon in 1891. Its role was to administer vaccines for rabies and smallpox in Indochina. Numerous others were then set up in Asia, such as the laboratory founded by Alexandre Yersin in Nha Trang in 1895, and the one in Hanoi in 1925.

Many were also established in Africa. Firstly in North Africa with an initial institute set up in Tunis in 1893, followed by one in Algiers in 1894 (for Algeria), and then Tangier in 1910 and Casablanca in 1929 (for Morocco).
