Our mission is to achieve better health for poor and vulnerable communities in Australia and internationally through research, education and public health. Burnet is an Australian, not-for-profit, unaligned and independent organisation that links medical research with public health action, recognising that solutions to many of the major global health problems require comprehensive and innovative responses. These include novel discoveries, such as the development of new vaccines and diagnostic tests, and the better use of existing best-practice health interventions. With an estimated 33 million people living with HIV and millions more affected by other infectious diseases, Burnet is playing its part in trying to improve the health of disadvantaged, poor or otherwise vulnerable communities.   EXPERTISE With more than 400 staff involved in research and public health programs in seven countries, including Australia, our expertise lies in specific infectious diseases of global health significance – such as HIV and AIDS, hepatitis viruses, influenza, malaria and emerging infectious diseases. Our scientists and researchers are studying the immune responses to these diseases and developing therapies to these infections and other human diseases including some cancers. What makes our work unique is the linking of laboratory-based medical research with field-based public health programs aimed at creating a healthier world.   HEALTH THEMES Alcohol, Drugs and Harm Reduction Maternal and Child Health Immunity, Vaccines and Immunisation Sexual and Reproductive Health Infectious Diseases Young People's Health   WHERE WE WORK Melbourne Myanmar (Burma) China Papua New Guinea Fiji Sri Lanka Indonesia Thailand Lao People's Democratic Republic Vanuatu
