Bio Farma is also working together with the Ministry of Research & Technology, the Agency for the Assessment and Application Technology (BPPT), the Indonesian Science Institute (LIPI), the Indonesian Food and Drug Monitoring Agency (BPOM), Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology, and several universities to develop a flag vaccine (vaksin Merah Putih).
