Excellence & Relevance

Tropical diseases, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and inadequate health care influence the lives of billions of people worldwide.

ITM promotes the advancement of science and health for all, through innovative research, advanced education, professional services and capacity building of partner institutions in the South.

For us, scientific excellence and social impact are two sides of the same coin.
