CENTRE OF RESEARCH EXCELLENCE ON TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL FROM DISCOVERY TO PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICE & POLICY
Grant number: 1043225 | Funding period: 2012 - 2017
TB is a global public health problem, responsible for the deaths of 2 million children and young adults annually. Drug resistant strains of TB are emerging and pose a threat even in countries where TB is well controlled, such as Australia. Research undertaken in this CRE will translate into improved treatments, diagnostics and strategies to prevent transmission. The CRE will build capacity for research on TB in our region and provide a legal framework to support public health policy.
