Institute of Tropical Medicine
Global Science for Health Worldwide
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 the advancement of science and health for all, through innovative research, advanced education, professional medical services and capacity sharing with partner institutions in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
For us, scientific excellence and societal impact are two sides of the same coin.
