Last October, the Institut Pasteur International Network has officially become a member of the Global Research collaboration for infectious diseases preparedness research alliance (GloPID-R).
GloPID-R is a network comprising 27 research and research funding organizations on the global scale as well as WHO. The aim of this alliance is to ensure that research capacity and capabilities are in place to support the rapid initiation of scientific research in case of an infectious disease outbreak.
Located in numerous endemic areas, the Institut Pasteur International Network is a major actor in the fight against emerging or reemerging infectious diseases. Its participation in the GloPID-R alliance will fuel the strategic reflections on research priorities and allow for a better information sharing and research coordination to efficiently address epidemic outbreak.
