Welcome to the Swiss Society of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology

The overall goal of the Swiss Society of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology (SSTMP) is to represent the integrating basis for the common interests of all people in Switzerland working in the fields of tropical medicine and parasitology.

The SSTMP is open for all activities in basic and applied research in parasitology as well as in tropical medicine. The activities within these three domains represent the driving force of the SSTMP. The committee of the SSTMP encourages and coordinates if necessary individual initiatives and activities within and interactions between these domains. The annual assembly and the annual scientific meeting form the integrating forum where the emphasis is laid on the interdisciplinary aspects of and the critical dialog between the three domains. The SSTMP represents the interests of its members towards other scientific societies, political and educational institutions.



A short history of the SSTMP

The SSTMP celebrates its 75th anniversary. That is why we would like to offer you a short history of the society. The richly illustrated jubilee book focuses on the many milestones in the past, introduces some of the eminent members of the society and offers a glimpse into the future.
