How HJFMRI Works

HJFMRI facilitates medical research by providing responsive, flexible support services in managing surveillance efforts and executing clinical research across the globe. HJFMRI is familiar with geo-political and cultural environments and by leveraging its deep scientific roots, it builds the right team to ensure successful overseas research. Our corporate culture and management approach is flexible and mission-oriented.

HJFMRI’s strength lies in our close working relationships with host-country implementing stakeholders and partners, military and civilian treatment facilities and medical research laboratories overseas. These relationships, combined with our highly skilled staff, provide HJFMRI with capable and focused global experience to assist our sponsors in the accomplishment of their missions. 


Through the HJFMRI Regional Office in Nairobi, Kenya, HJFMRI provides administrative Home Office level support to its international programs.  HJFMRI hires host-country staff with regional expertise both for administrative oversight as well as technical execution (research scientists, epidemiologists, laboratorians) to work with local organizations to advance global health, focusing primarily on infectious diseases.

In addition to its Regional Office in Nairobi, in 2020, HJFMRI opened the HJFMRI Western Kenya Office in the town of Kisumu to better support the Government of Kenya and our partners in the region. HJFMRI believes sustainable development is achieved only when we partner with the host government, members of the community, research, and academic institutions, and NGOs.

HJFMRI's robust financial, program management and procurement systems provide assurance to funding partners and build the capabilities of our local implementing partners. Since its founding, the office has been able to support existing studies while pursuing business opportunities to attract new partners due to increased client satisfaction and improved service delivery.
