Tropical diseases, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and inadequate health care affect the lives of billions of people worldwide.
The Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) in Antwerp (Belgium) strives for continuous advancement of science and health. We focus on innovative research, advanced education, professional services and capacity strengthening of our partner institutions in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
For us, scientific excellence and societal impact are two sides of the same coin.
