Malaria. Ebola. Cholera. Dengue Fever.
These and other diseases threaten countless lives, destabilize
communities, and pose far-reaching geo-political hazards. And they are
only an airplane ride away. Every day researchers, clinicians and
educators work to prevent and control infectious diseases, increase
public awareness and pursue scientific breakthroughs leading to
effective treatments and control strategies.
Whether on the front lines — fighting malaria and other
scourges in far-off jungles and villages — or in the laboratory
— seeking cures and treatments for millions of disease sufferers
worldwide — tropical medicine professionals are committed to
making a difference.
The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene has a number of
resources available to educate the public about what our members do, and
the diseases they combat.
