About Us - Buiding

SEARCH is a partnership that began in 2005 with a goal of accomplishing mutual objectives in HIV/ AIDS research and training in the South-East Asia region between partners: The Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre and Military HIV Research Program (MHRP). SEARCH conducts its activities in Thailand under The Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre.

SEARCH is interested in various aspects of HIV/ AIDS and related infectious diseases. Within the short period since its inception, SEARCH has been involved in the following areas of studies as well as serving as a training center for HIV/ AIDS, both adults and pediatrics:

  1. Neuro AIDS
  2. HIV Immunology and Virology, and Vaccine Development
  3. Sexual Health in Women and Men
  4. Opportunistic and Co-infections


To create a model for achieving long-term remission of HIV and antiretroviral drug-free survival in people living with HIV.


SEARCH's mission is to elucidate the interplay between viral and host factors during the establishment of HIV infection and the mechanisms that underlie its persistence. By understanding these factors, SEARCH aims to identify strategies that can support more effective immunological responses to HIV infection and lead to control or clearance of the virus without the need for lifelong antiretroviral therapy.
