From Our Partners

HSP’s extensive network of partners around the world are working tirelessly to strengthen capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the onset of the outbreak, our partners have been champions of health security, working to raise awareness, train health and laboratory professionals to enhance preparedness, and support the response to COVID-19 infections in their countries.


In Pakistan, HSP Partner, the Association for Biorisk Management (ABM)’s Veterinary cohort, recently traveled to the mountainous region of Loralai in Balochistan in order to educate nomadic shepherds in that region about COVID-19.


In the Kurdish region of Iraq, HSP Fellow Dr. Osama Shareef is leading teams at the ASA Hospital and Sarchner Center, both in Sulaymaniyah City,  to conduct COVID-19 PCR testing. Between the two sites, they are running up to 545 tests daily, which is critical to Iraq’s efforts to identify and contain the spread of the coronavirus.


In Turkey, HSP Partner Dr. Hakan Gülerce, Harran University Migration Policy Application and Research Center (HÜGÖÇ), and his collaborator Dr. Veysel Bozkurt, Istanbul University, are leading a survey on the sociological impact of COVID-19.

In Indonesia, HSP is working with the Indonesian Biorisk Association (IBA) and the National Standardization Agency (BSN) to conduct week-long, intensive virtual training programs for labs that are new to COVID-19 testing.
