After working in infectious disease research in Viet Nam for almost 30 years, OUCRU’s vision for the next 10 years is to have local, regional and global impact on health, by leading a locally driven research program on infectious diseases in Southeast Asia. We realize that in order to meet our aims of being locally driven, as well as having impact, we need to have a strong understanding of health policy priorities in Viet Nam, as well as to nurture and develop strong relationships with health policy stakeholders in Vietnam.

Since January 2020, OUCRU has been quickly building a portfolio of research in response to COVID-19. Details of the project in progress are included in this document.  We have grouped it into broad research themes including Clinical Research, Diagnosis and Virology, Epidemiology, Mathematical Modeling, and Social Science, Public and Policy Engagement.

Our research is always collaborative, working closely with local partners, as well as with partners from across our wider programme.  This portfolio also contains many cross-disciplinary projects, recognizing that this pandemic is broad-reaching and needs a flexible, multi-layered response.
