New Task Order: Monitoring the Spread of Multi-drug Resistant Plasmodium Species in Central Vietnam
TO22F-0124, Malaria Vietnam, 19 September 2022 – 18 September 2023
Vysnova will support NAMRU-2 to fulfill the goals and objectives of the research project “Monitoring the Spread of Multi-drug Resistant Plasmodium Species in Central Vietnam”. The primary, overarching objective of this project is to continue and expand existing infectious disease surveillance networks for both military and civilian populations in order to identify and record symptoms and outcomes of malaria among patients in Vietnam. NAMRU-2’s infectious disease surveillance system enables rapid and accurate identification of pathogens and vectors that may pose a threat to the Vietnamese people and locally deployed Armed Forces, or in a worst-case scenario, develop risk of drug resistant malaria spread to people around the world.
Vysnova provides the program management and administrative work to support NAMRU-2 in conducting biomedical, epidemiological, and clinical research efforts including human subjects and animal use research projects around Southeast Asia with extension to East and South Asia countries.
Vysnova provides contracting services, project management, and staffing including SMEs (e.g., Biostatisticians, Malaria experts, Epidemiologists, etc.) to support the ongoing development, performance, and management of NAMRU-2 research and in collaboration with host-country partners across Southeast Asia (SEA) region.
The Vysnova Impact:
The support of Vysnova helps improve NAMRU-2 research productivity in the region. It also helps relieve NAMRU-2 scientists from program management, administrative and contractual burdens so they can focus more on the scientific aspects. With Vysnova’ s support, NAMRU-2 will be able to extend its research in infectious diseases and emerging diseases in the region in the future. Vysnova’s coordination results in a smooth transition between the client’s project officers to ensure FAR compliance as well as the host country’s rules and regulations.
