Professional Development for Health Security

Project Details

The Australia Indonesia Health Security Partnership (AIHSP) is promoting stronger Government of Indonesia systems and coordination to prevent, detect and respond to public health and animal health threats.

Over 75% percent of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) are zoonoses, animal diseases that can be transmitted to humans. EIDs have the potential to exact a heavy economic and social toll on communities and countries where they take hold.

The Nossal Institute is partnering with AIHSP through a co-design process to develop an integrated, multi-step program of Professional Development for Health Security (HS) in Indonesia. The Institute will deliver the first Foundation Course in Indonesia in July 2022.
