Prins Leopold Instituut voor Tropische Geneeskunde
Antwerp, Belgium


University description (as per official university website)

The Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp, Belgium (ITM) is one of the world's leading institutes for training, research and assistance in tropical medicine and health care in developing countries.

The ITM houses five scientific departments, a specialised outpatient clinic and various support services, and employs over 400 staff. The institute draws its core funding from the Flemish Ministries of Education and Science, and the Federal Ministries of Development Cooperation, Public Health and Social Affairs, international project financing and own income.

The ITM works with many scientific institutions, governments and organisations all over the world for a long-lasting improvement of health care and disease control in developing countries.

Main goals

To strengthen the rational basis for medical and veterinary healthcare in developing countries.
To respond to domestic needs in the field of tropical and import pathology and AIDS.
Field of activity

All diseases and health problems related to the specific ecological and socio-economic conditions of developing countries. The core tasks within this field are:

Outpatient, clinical and preventive services in tropical (veterinary) medicine and related pathology, including HIV/AIDS.
Education in tropical (veterinary) medicine and in the organization of healthcare in developing countries.
Research on biomedical, clinical and operational aspects of tropical diseases and their control, and on the organization of healthcare in developing countries.
Advice and support for governments, organizations and institutions in developing countries, in Belgium and at the international level, involved in human and animal healthcare in developing countries. Capacity strengthening of those institutions.
Standards and values

Specificity: ITM’s activities must fall within the framework of its specific mandate. They complement, not compete with, the work of the universities, other research institutions and development agencies.
Quality: Unless the quality and efficiency of its activities meet the highest standards, the existence of a specific, specialized institute such as ITM cannot be justified.
Relevance: All its activities must be geared towards improving health in developing countries.
Integrity: Its activities must be based on a common vision of healthcare and development. Without excluding different visions, as a “school”, ITM must communicate a coherent, rational concept via all its activities.
Institutional strength: Full use must be made of its institutional strength. The specific value of ITM lies in its multi and interdisciplinary approach, the close links between research, education and services, the high quality of its expertise, and its long-term commitment to its field of activity.
Partnership: All activities are carried out in collaboration with partners in the developing countries and, where necessary, with institutions in Belgium and elsewhere. These partnerships are fundamental to completing the above tasks and meeting the above standards.
