Welcome to Contain This, brought to you by the Indo-Pacific Centre for Health Security, an initiative of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. This episode is hosted by Francette Dusan, Senior Advisor at the Centre.

In today’s episode, we speak to Dr Thu Anh Nguyen. Dr Thu Anh Nguyen is an infectious diseases and public health researcher. Her research focuses on detection and treatment of tuberculosis, HIV, hepatitis B and C, and more recently, Covid-19. You may recall we spoke to Thu Anh a year ago, about her work on V-Resist, a project addressing antimicrobial resistance in Vietnam. If you haven’t already, I suggest you pause now, and scroll back to August 2020 to listen to the previous podcast. You can find more information on V-Resist here:

Today we catch up on Thu Anh’s work supporting the Covid-19 response in Vietnam, and how the response has intersected with other work on infectious diseases including tuberculosis. We chat about research partnerships, how these can work to generate evidence to inform country priorities and some of the lesson’s Thu Anh has learnt about leadership and communication.

Enjoy the episode.
