Our aim is to support clinicians and scientists in all disciplines of tropical medicine and global health. This includes the relationship between human health and animal health, in the pursuit of themes of clinical or scientific research or fieldwork.

Travel scholarships will remain as awards of up to £1,000 for 2018, but will be offered for attendance to RSTMH meetings in the first instance.
