Co-creator of the cervical cancer vaccine Professor Ian Frazer has just finished a two-and-a-half-week tour of South-East Asia in an effort to promote and showcase Australian scientific research.
Sponsored by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the diplomacy tour included stops in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia Vietnam and the Philippines.
“This trip provided a great opportunity to interact with the health care professionals and government officials responsible for cervical cancer control in South east Asia, and we each learnt a lot from each other,” Professor Frazer said.
