Within ICID’s mandate is the role of strengthening Canada’s infectious diseases contribution to the world by building and coordinating its community of organizations through major projects, such as vaccine development. ICID draws together the best scientists and technologies that Canada has to offer, helping them obtain funding, administer their projects and work collaboratively.

International Projects:

  • ICID UNICEF HIV Prevention in Ukraine
  • International Indigenous HPV Alliance
  • Canadian HIV Vaccine Initiative (CHVI) Research & Development Alliance Coordinating Office
  • International High Containment Workshops
  • National Projects:
  • National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases
  • Canadian HIV Vaccine Initiative (CHVI) Research & Development Alliance Coordinating Office
  • Canadian Network for Public Health Intelligence
  • Canadian Network on HPV Prevention


ICID identifies needs, develops goals, objectives and workplans, and builds platforms to create effective national and international networks and virtual communities. Once networks are created, ICID recruits members and encourages knowledge sharing and group participation. ICID currently hosts two confidential internet-based communities to enhance collaboration among Canadian researchers and other stakeholders with an interest in either HPV or HIV vaccine development.


ICID delivers training courses and educational services in biosafety, laboratory facilities management, and in the development of expertise related to infectious diseases. We assemble teams of specialists from across Canada and elsewhere to provide training around the world via workshops and webinars. In addition to our training in the areas of influenza, HIV, HPV, zoster, and meningoccal disease, we offer workshops on partner notification and outreach to vulnerable populations. ICID is also taking advantage of Canada’s unique capabilities and facilities to raise international standards for biosafety and biosecurity. ICID continues to expand its offering of high containment laboratory courses through its collaboration with others in the Canadian Biosafety Training Partnership.
