Mission / Objective
We aim to achieve better health for poor and vulnerable communities in Australia and internationally through research, education and public health.
Projects in Progress
The Burnet Institute is an Australian not-for-profit, unaligned and independent organisation whose purpose is to improve the health of disadvantaged, poor or otherwise vulnerable people throughout the world.
We are passionate in our commitment to working and growing together to create a healthier world. We value excellence, innovation and social justice and share a desire to extend the boundaries of knowledge and understanding.
While Burnet’s laboratory research and public health programs address issues surrounding promoting better health and the treatment and prevention of many diseases, several major health themes underpin our work:
Sexual & Reproductive Health
Maternal & Child Health
Young People’s Health
Alcohol, Other Drugs & Harm Reduction
Immunity, Vaccines & Immunisation
If you share our vision of a future freed from the suffering caused by infectious disease, poverty and social inequity, please join with us and support Burnet today.
