The Mahidol-Oxford Clinical Research Unit has been collaborating with the Indonesian Ministry of Health and the Menzies School of Health Research in Australia to conduct research on vivax malaria in Papua for many years.
In 2007, the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Vietnam established collaborative links with the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology (EIMB) and together we established the Eijkman-Oxford Clinical Research Unit (EOCRU). The Eijkman Institute and EOCRU pursue a joint research agenda focused on endemic infections such as influenza, malaria, typhoid and dengue fever. We currently work on collaborative projects with the Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia, Jakarta; Hasan Sadikin Hospital, Bandung, West Java; District Public Hospital, Jayapura, Papua; Karitas Hospital, Waikabubak, Sumba; Faculty of Medicine, Hasanuddin University, Makassar, South Sulawesi; Adam Malik Hospital, University of North Sumatra, Medan; the Subdirectorate for Malaria Control of the Indonesian Centers for Disease Control; and the World Health Organization's SEARO (Delhi) and WPRO (Manila) Units. We also host the regional and national offices of the South East Asian Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Network.
