Taking Science to Impact

World NTD Day 2021: Equity

NTDs are a threat to 1.7 billion people globally and are responsible for thousands of preventable deaths each year, perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

With World NTD Day on the horizon, we are proud to have joined the campaign to #EndtheNeglect and #BeatNTDs.

Registration and Programme

Citizen Survey

Every day, people are exposed to chemical substances that are widely used in consumer products. The Human Biomonitoring Programme HBM4EU investigates how and to what extent these chemicals enter the human body. The research programme is a joint effort of 30 European countries. Swiss TPH is in the lead of the study in Switzerland. To understand citizen's perspectives on safe chemical management in Europe and Switzerland, HBM4EU is conducting a citizen survey.
