The Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine has recently collaborated with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a non-for-profit research organisation based in India. DEPM hosted a morning tea last week to introduce TERI's work and its partnership with The Infectious Diseases Epidemiology Group at DEPM.

TERI was established in 1974 with a mission of dealing with serious environmental and developmental problems that mankind would face in the years ahead. The problems included the gradual depletion of non-renewable resources and the existing methods of livelihood adopted by people that are polluting.
