During the COMBAT study researchers are looking for resistant intestinal bacteria. This bacteria are causing problems mainly in Asia but also in other regions. The research is aiming to find out how often these bacteria enter the Netherlands and what happens when they do. Does the bacteria disappear from the tourists body or doesn’t it.

MEMIC  supplies the COMBAT researchers with a logistical information system as well as the processing of paper surveys, which are also designed by MEMIC.
