The Public Health Interventions Research Group undertakes a diverse range of projects that focus on the evaluation of strategies to prevent infectious disease. We collaborate extensively within The Kirby Institute and externally, and emphasise research that benefits the health of disadvantaged populations in Australia and the Asia-Pacific Region. Much of our work also has a strong capacity building component. The group is currently involved in projects related to the control of HIV, sexually transmitted infections, viral hepatitis, tuberculosis, scabies and trachoma. Countries of activity include Australia, Papua Guinea, Indonesia, Cambodia and Fiji.
