The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH), former Swiss Tropical Institute (STI), has been founded in 1943. It has research and teaching activities in the arear of international health development. In June 2009 the Institute for Social and Preventive Medicine of the University of Basel, active in the areas of environmental epidemiology and women’s health, was integrated into the Swiss TPH.

Today over 500 employees from 40 nations work worldwide for the Swiss TPH in research, teaching and services with the main goal to contribute to health development worldwide.

As an associate institute of the University of Basel, the Swiss TPH takes part in teaching within various faculties, as well as is engaged in post-graduate education and advanced training on national and international levels.

The Swiss TPH receives 81% of its income through competitive fundraising and the earnings of our service departments. The remaining budget is given by the Basel cantons and the Swiss federal government.

Salute - Scienze sociali
I ricercatori svizzeri del TPH hanno testato due diverse combinazioni di farmaci contro il verme parassita Trichuris trichiura sull'isola di Pemba, in Tanzania. I risultati mostrano che una nuova combinazione di trattamento (moxidectina e albendazolo) è inferiore rispetto alla combinazione di trattamento attualmente raccomandata (ivermectina e albendazolo). Tuttavia, la moxidectina potrebbe essere un'alternativa nelle aree in cui l'ivermectina non è facilmente disponibile o potenzialmente in presenza di resistenze all'ivermectina.
