When it comes to health security, Australians have great expertise to offer countries across the Indo-Pacific to respond to infectious disease threats.
Health Security Corps
Under the Health Security Initiative, the Australian Government has established the Health Security Corps to deploy Australian health professionals in non-clinical roles in government agencies, NGOs, international organisations, research bodies and regional institutions.
Health Security Corps deployments aim to build in-country capacity for the prevention and containment of infectious disease threats. The Health Security Corps also builds people-to-people and institutional links to share knowledge and experiences, strengthens networks and increases understanding of health security across the region.
We are looking for volunteers with a range of skills including laboratory work, field epidemiology, policy development for disease control, public communication and animal health.
The Health Security Corps is part of the Australian Volunteers Program.
