Organization Description:
Oxford International Biomedical Centre is a high-level humanitarian organization targeted at the developing world. It is an international charity registered in the UK and aimed at helping developing countries.

Diseases like tuberculosis, malaria and AIDS alone kill about 5 million people each year. This poses a two-fold challenge for scientific research and training. How to enable the intellectual abilities of three quarters of the globe in which these diseases largely occur - yet who are without sufficient resources - to be fulfilled so that they can tackle the problem themselves, and how to integrate the commercial and fundamental basis of scientific endeavour in order to improve health and the quality of life. The problems are enormous, but so are the potential rewards. The solution lies in a single word: cooperation. Cooperation between developing and developed countries; cooperation between academic and industrial institutions; cooperation between scientists and medical doctors. It is to translate these aims into reality that the Oxford International Biomedical Centre was established.

Our mission is to improve health and the quality of life across the globe by promoting access to learning and research.

Our goals are :
(1) To enable scientists and medical doctors from Asia, Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe to gain better access to Western knowledge and its practitioners.
(2) To share information on third world diseases that are now appearing in the West.
(3) To foster an understanding of scientific and medical issues by senior schoolchildren and the lay public.
(4) To promote biomedical research and development through commercial ventures within and outside the UK.

Since its launch in 1992, OIBC has organized international conferences and workshops in 20 locations across 4 continents. It has signed collaborative agreements with prestigious institutions in 5 countries, and its Director has lectured across the globe. Scientists and medical doctors in Asia, Africa, Latin America
