AFRIMS Celebrates 60 Years of Partnership with Royal Thai Army
Bangkok, Thailand —
Members from the U.S. Army Medical Directorate-Armed Forces Research Institute of the Medical Sciences (AFRIMS) celebrated 60 years of sustained partnership in Thailand, November 4, 2021.
For the last six decades, AFRIMS has played a pivotal role in improving host nation capacity and medical capabilities through its robust collaborations between the Royal Thai Army, the Cambodian public health infrastructure, and the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces.
The partnerships evolved through the years and set a model outbreak response approach for the current global pandemic. AFRIMS remains engaged in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic throughout Southeast Asia as the institute continues to monitor and report on the COVID-19 situation both within Thailand and regionally.
