Excellence in global health

To find solutions to today’s global health challenges, interdisciplinary partnerships are essential; a fact recognised
by the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH), an associated institute of the University of Basel and part
of the global tropEd-network.

TropEd is an international network of member institutions for higher education in international/global health from Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and Latin America. tropEd provides postgraduate opportunities for education and training contributing to sustainable development. It focuses on improving the management of health services for disadvantaged populations. The innovative approach is based on mobility of people, the exchange of experiences in different disciplines and the establishment of a common standard in education and training.

Drawing from its global network and its experience in research, service provision,
education and training, Swiss TPH offers a unique study environment for those looking to improve international health and the well-being of populations.
