Malaria - Swiss TPH at Global Level
Swiss TPH is a highly respected academic institution within Switzerland, with a world-class reputation in global health research and action with a particular focus, expertise and experience in the area of malaria research, control and elimination. Our activities benefit from a commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration and a network of well-established partnerships in low- and middle-income countries in Africa, Asia and South America, as well as in Europe and North America.
Sharing Expertise with the Next Generation
Our institute includes international students who come to Swiss TPH to do their PhD or MSc. The students are carefully selected and often go back to their home country where they share their knowledge and typically go on to have high positions in local institutions. In this way we build capacity and a strong global network of well-educated individuals.
Swiss TPH Malaria Experts Contribute to several Global Health Consortia
With our services and advisory mandates we contribute our experience and expertise to the Basel area and Swiss community, as well as internationally. Our malaria experts are represented in leading consortia for global health such as the Roll Back Malaria Partnership, the Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV), the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DINDi), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and WHO/TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases as well as in advisory Committees of the World Health Organization. Swiss TPH together with Deloitte Consulting implemented the extensive consultative process that informed the development of the Second Global Malaria Action Plan “Action and Investment to defeat Malaria 2016-2030 (AIM) for a malaria-free world.”
