The Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) was established in Ho Chi Minh City in 1991. It is hosted by the Hospital for Tropical Diseases (HTD), originally founded in 1862. HTD is the referral hospital for infectious diseases for all of southern Viet Nam.

OUCRU’s strategic aim is to have a positive and significant impact on local, regional, and global health and, in particular, the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. This is being achieved via an integrated long-term research programme, contributions to training, the scientific literature, national and international meetings and membership of national and international committees.

OUCRU HCM not only works with HTD, but also a significant number of other hospitals and clinics across southern Viet Nam. All work is intended to benefit the patients seen daily at HTD, and also to help improve patient care throughout the country.
