Finding Global Health Solutions in Asia-Pacifc's disadvantaged communities

The Asia-Pacific region is home to over 50 per cent of the world’s population and includes many who live in absolute poverty.  Our aim is to find meaningful and relevant ways to improve the health of people living here.

The burden from malnutrition and infectious diseases in poorly resourced communities remains unacceptably high, particularly among the most vulnerable such as pregnant women and young children.

Your gift will help Menzies’ Global and Tropical Health Division to tackle key areas of public health concern, including malaria, tuberculosis, bacterial infections, and maternal and child health and nutrition.

With a focus on practical outcomes as a result of our research , we collaborate closely with a diverse range of healthcare providers, policy makers and researchers from countries across the region to make a difference.
