Landover, MD September 13, 2018

Vysnova Partners, a global health project management firm, was recently awarded the Southeast Asia Biosurveillance and Epidemiology Research (SABER) II program to provide support for the Naval Medical Research Unit 2 (NAMRU-2) based in Singapore. Vysnova is currently the holder of the program’s precursory contract. SABER II is a single award IDIQ with a $38 million ceiling. It provides support for NAMRU-2 to evaluate novel diagnostics products and therapeutic interventions, test disease control strategies, and develop local expertise to detect and respond to emergent disease threats.  As the holder of the contract, Vysnova will support the ongoing development, performance and management of research across the Southeast Asia region in collaboration with host-country partners.

The SABER II contract ensures the continuation of our efforts to understand and combat malaria, Zika, MERS-CoV, and other vector-born illnesses. In addition to working with NAMRU-2 to develop preventative measures against infectious diseases and improve disease surveillance efforts, Vysnova is also working with NAMRU-2 under the Operational Research Support Across Southeast Asia to specifically target malaria infection. Some of Vysnova’s other work in this field includes helping to conduct malaria indicator surveys as a subcontractor to ICF under the seventh phase of the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) Program for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Furthermore, Vysnova works with the Department of Health and Human Services at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to work with in-country partners in South America to perform testing and enhance surveillance in order to better understand and fight Zika infection in pregnant women and their children.

Vysnova is honored to continue to work with our in-country partners and the Navy in reducing and preventing infectious diseases and improving the health of communities in Southeast Asia.
