Under the strategic direction of development for “Health Informatics (HI)”, the Department of Computer Science has founded a Joint Research Laboratory with the most authoritative policymakers in China on parasitic disease and neglected tropical disease control and prevention, namely, the National Institute for Parasitic Diseases (NIPD) in the China CDC. The primary mission of this unique joint working platform is to enable HKBU researchers to work directly with policymakers and practitioners (national, provincial, and city-level CDC’s) as well as their counterparts in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), Southeast Asia (SEA), and Africa. This effectively enables them to introduce and deploy changes in their respective policy guidelines and practices for the time-critical infectious disease elimination and post-elimination phases.
