Queensland Tropical Health Alliance (QTHA)

 

Description

The Queensland Tropical Health Alliance (QTHA) is a collaborative research network that aims to reduce the burden of tropical disease in Queensland and other tropical regions. Many of QTHA's projects have a particular focus on the health of Indigenous, regional and remote tropical communities.

QTHA conducts research on endemic diseases that affect these communities - including melioidosis, Q fever, drug-resistant Staphyloccoccus aureus, group A Streptococcus and pneumonia - as well as those that pose a health security threat to Australia via the Indo-Papuan biogeographic corridor in the Torres Strait. These include dengue fever, malaria, Japanese encephalitis, multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, cholera, rabies, avian influenza (H5N1), bat-borne viruses and other newly emerging pathogens.

QTHA was created in 2009 and brings together researchers from:
