Swiss TPH

The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) works in interdisciplinary partnerships to respond to local, national and international public health priorities, seeking solutions through innovation (discovery through promotion and testing hypotheses), validation (evidence providing what works), and application (strengthening individual and public actions, systems and polices). Our vision is to achieve significant improvements of human health and well-being through a better understanding of disease- and health systems and acting on this knowledge.
Through excellence in research (Epidemiology and Public Health, Medical Parasitology and Infection Biology), services (Swiss Centre for International Health, Medicines Research, Medical Diagnostics) and education and training, our some 700 staff members from 62 nations work toward this goal.
