Collaboration

 

 

The Institute has developed an extensive network of linkages with national and international agencies. We enjoy strong support from Mahidol University, other government organizations, as well as international organizations. Institute fellows benefit from these linkages through access to extensive program data and opportunities for field visits.

A trilateral cooperation program with the Thailand Government in collaboration with various international institutions and academic organizations has led to many regional workshops and training sessions. These organizations include the International Network for the Demographic Evaluation of Populations and Their Health in Developing Countries (INDEPTH), the Population Council, the Population Reference Bureau (PRB), the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (USA), UNFPA, United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), USAID and WHO.

The Institute has developed strong working relationships with universities and national agencies in countries throughout Asia and the Pacific, Europe, North America and Africa. We are also grateful for the excellent relationships we have with the international organisations and funding bodies who generously support our research.
