Throughout the year, the Foundation sponsors educational Round Tables, Webinars and special events to raise awareness and to engage the larger international community about the Institut Pasteur and its ongoing scientific achievements benefiting the global community.

Institut Pasteur

Since its creation by Louis Pasteur in 1887, the Institut Pasteur has been a recognized pioneer in the field of global public health. From Pasteur’s discovery of the rabies vaccine in 1885 to the identification of the AIDS virus in 1985, the Institut Pasteur has been responsible for the development of countless diagnostic and therapeutic tools that have advanced the understanding of genetics, Emerging Infectious Disease, neurosciences and vaccinology. With its 32 International Network sites, the Institut Pasteur continues to protect the health of countless populations around the globe. Since the establishment of the first International Network site in Vietnam in 1891 to the 2011 inauguration of its Laos site, the Institut Pasteur continues to fight against disease directly in the countries where they originate.
