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.


This past weekend, Dr. Asghar Ali and Dr. Murad Khan from the Association of Biorisk Management (ABM), one of HSP’s collaborating partners, appeared on Abaseen FM’s daily agricultural program, which reaches approximately seven million listeners throughout Pakistan.


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 the Philippines, our longstanding partner, the Biorisk Management Office (BRMO) of the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine (RITM), Department of Health, launched their biosafety and biosecurity webinar series – Biosafety Xchange on Facebook Live to support the COVID-19 response.


Over the weekend, HSP held a virtual planning meeting with our partners from both the Indonesian Biorisk Association (IBA) and the National Standardization Agency (BSN), in order to prepare for an upcoming Biorisk Management training program, which will occur virtually on July 13th, 2020.
