​The Australasian Clinical Tuberculosis Network (ACTnet) is a collaborative clinical research group spanning Australia and New Zealand. Following the successful model of the European “TBnet" collaboration (, ACTnet will engage clinicians and researchers across the two countries to conduct high-quality research of national and international significance. It will provide a platform for individual investigators, within infectious disease, respiratory, public health and other disciplines, to propose and implement multi-centre studies and laboratory collaborations.

The Network will act to facilitate research, however, individual investigators will be responsible for developing research proposals, obtaining funding and supporting research activities. The organisation will have complementary roles, and work alongside other peak clinical and research bodies in Australia and New Zealand to strengthen TB control through research.
