History of HJFMRI

HJFMRI has supported scientific and medical research since 2001. We are a global leader in international medical research programs related to infectious diseases, such as antimicrobial resistance, sexually-transmitted infections, febrile and vector-borne illnesses, including malaria, enteric infections, respiratory infections, and—most recently—Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2. Our team leverages its existing global infrastructure to fulfill requirements to better understand, treat, and prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases and to respond rapidly to emerging infectious disease outbreaks that threaten global public health.  

Over the past two decades we have played a key role in the success of hundreds of international medical programs. By providing scientific, technical, and program support services to our partners, HJFMRI has helped patients around the world receive treatment for life-threatening diseases.  

Working side-by-side with medical researchers, HJFMRI provides a wide range of services that facilitate basic research, scientific trials, clinical care, training, capacity-building, facility management, and more. From mentoring small entities to managing large consortiums, we partner with leading medical research organizations, universities, foundations, and private industry to identify, prevent, and treat diseases around the world. 


HJFMRI partners with organizations around the globe to solve complex challenges in global health. Since 2001, HJFMRI has partnered with more than a dozen entities from public health organizations to private sector research partners.
