Public Health Research Institute (PHRI)

Project duration: July 1967 - 1971

Project description:

Within the framework of Thai-German technical cooperation four German experts were dispatched in Thailand to support the departments of bacteriology/serology, parasitology, pharmacology and pharmacognosy at the Public Health Research Institute in Bangkok. Their activities included the installation of the respective laboratories as well as training of laboratory personnel.
The project significantly improved the working conditions at the central laboratory of the PHRI and its branches in Phitsanulok, Haad Yai, and Songkhla resulting in improved reliability of the test results. At the end of the project the production of serum, which formerly had to be imported from abroad, was possible at the institute.
