The SSTMP brings together experts in tropical medicine and parasitology. It represents and promotes the network of students, experts from science and medicine and organisations in this field.
The overall goal of the Swiss Society of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology (SSTMP) is to represent the integrating basis for the common interests of all people in Switzerland working in the fields of tropical medicine and parasitology.

The SSTMP is open for all activities in basic and applied research in parasitology as well as in tropical medicine. The activities within these three domains represent the driving force of the SSTMP.

The committee of the SSTMP encourages and coordinates if necessary individual initiatives and activities within and interactions between these domains. The annual assembly and the annual scientific meeting form the integrating forum where the emphasis is laid on the interdisciplinary aspects of and the critical dialogue between the three domains.

The SSTMP represents the interests of its members towards other scientific societies, political and educational institutions. To foster young scientists, the SSTMP awards outstanding achievements in research on tropical diseases and/or parasitology with an annual prize and supports the attendance of scientific meetings.
