The CONRAD study, our first HIV research was initiated, focusing on the risk factor of

HIV transmission among Northern Thai population.

The result was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1996

Since then, we have expanded our mission to cover all areas of HIV research 

 

2007 

RIHES, in partnership with the AIDS Research Center, Thai Red Cross were selected through a competitive process by the US National Institutes of Health
