Select a Country to View PIRE Projects

Global health research is one of the challenging areas in which PIRE scientists are engaged.  Our work represents initiatives around the world in Africa, India, Asia, Europe, Australia, and South America.  These projects build partnerships with in-country non-government organizations and scientists essential to successful outcomes and are keeping with the goals set forward by the Federal Government and foundations.  To date, most of our international work focuses on topics related to alcohol, tobacco, and drugs; sexual risk taking; economic impacts; and policy research.  A wide range of approaches are represented, including environmental approaches, and including interventions for communities, schools, families, and military bases.   New initiatives are expanding to include special topics such as migratory workers, obesity, night-clubs, and orphans.

To support these efforts, PIRE has developed infrastructure resources for scientists engaged in international collaborative work.  These resources include contacts around the world, mechanisms for sharing of institutional knowledge regarding challenges inherent in conducting research internationally, and administrative support for such work.  In addition, PIRE scientists have been actively engaged in working with the Society for Prevention Research to form an International Network Forum to support collaborations both within and outside of PIRE. 

Below, are three different categories of information that provide more information regarding PIRE international efforts.
