About The Swiss TPH Virtual Gallery

The history of the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) is the history of its people: the researchers, doctors, IT-specialists, administrative personnel, gardeners, keepers, and students who render research meaningful.

The virtual Gallery focuses on the research done by Swiss TPH doctoral students since 1956.

It tells the history of Swiss TPH from their perspective and gives an impression of the diversification of nationalities over time, changing disease patterns and health systems, the proliferation of new research topics and the development of institutionalised research partnerships around the globe. In so doing, it traces Swiss TPH’s transformation into an important player in the field of global health.
