Established in 1967, Fondation Mérieux is an independent family foundation. Recognised as a state-approved charity, it fights the infectious diseases that affect developing countries.
It is currently present in a dozen countries and offers a specific model based on a long history of expertise in clinical biology and a comprehensive approach to public health issues.
Its mission is to contribute to global health by strengthening local capacities of developing countries to reduce the impact of infectious diseases on vulnerable populations.
Its strategy is based around three main focuses:
Focus 1:  Strengthen local clinical  biology and applied research capacities for more accurate and  timely identification of infectious diseases
Focus 2: Improve the quality and accessibility of clinical laboratory diagnostics for vulnerable populations to ensure appropriate care
Focus 3: Promote, through Les Pensières Conference Centre, exchange among public health stakeholders to share and enhance knowledge on infectious diseases and foster innovation
Wherever possible, Fondation Mérieux forms public and private partnerships in the country in which it is active to ensure the long-term future of its projects. The purpose of this being that should Fondation Mérieux one day withdraw from a country, the structures set up will remain in place.
In its activity, Fondation Mérieux team has the support of a unique international network of scientific experts (doctors, pharmacists, researchers, specialists in infectious diseases, vaccinology, epidemiology…)
Fondation Mérieux observes principles of absolute transparency and pursues non-profit making objectives. It is independent of any industrial or commercial interest.
