Bouchra Assarag dedicated her PhD research at the Institute of Tropical Medicine to pregnancy complications in the isolated Moroccan Al Haouz region. A photo exhibition and documentary presented at the annual ITM Colloquium in Rabat tell the untold stories of pregnancy complications in rural Morocco.
The Antwerp Institute of Tropical Medicine has launched a fellowship program for selected medical graduates from the U.S. The ITM Damien fellowships 2016-2017, named after Belgian international health pioneer Father Damien, give three medical doctors access to a postgraduate course in Antwerp as a springboard for further specialization in tropical medicine and international health.
2015 is a crucial year for development cooperation: on the one hand we reach the deadline for the millennium goals and on the other hand we will set course for a new orientation of sustainable development cooperation. Under the motto "Our world, our dignity, our future", the development cooperation of the EU and its Member States will be presented to the main public.
We post our activities on development cooperation on the European Year for Development website.
