The Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene is a charity and membership society that has been dedicated to improving tropical medicine and global health since 1907.

Our ambition is to save lives and improve health around the world through increased access to and greater equity in global healthcare.

Through our activities we help further our members’ careers. We also harness their collective knowledge and expertise to achieve change within the sector. Our members, based in over 90 countries, are at all stages of their careers, working across a multitude of disciplines and from a range of sectors.

Under our new strategy, we want to ensure that we are supporting our members and supporters who are based outside of the UK and are early in their careers. We hope grow will help inspire and support people at all stages of their interest and career, and we will be adding new content to the site for our members.


"It’s a particularly exciting time to explore opportunities in global health. Now, more than ever, we are aware of how global health affects all of us."

Tamar Ghosh, CEO, RSTMH
