Organization profile

Profile Information

IHMT aims at contributing to solve global health problems, particularly those afflicting the poorest and the excluded in all continents, in an equitable and sustainable way and with full respect for diversity. This is translated into activities, such as the promotion of teaching, research and international cooperation; providing services and translating scientific knowledge to the community; and preserving the historical heritage. Since its inception in 1902, the Institute has been at the forefront of research, teaching and medical practice related to tropical diseases, having evolved towards an integrated approach, ranging from the molecular level to global health system, which is translated into the activities pursued by its R&D Centre Global Health and Tropical Medicine – GHTM, rated as “Excellent” by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia. The research work is closely linked to several master (https://www.ihmt.unl.pt/course-type/mestrados/) and doctoral programmes (https://www.ihmt.unl.pt/course-type/doutoramentos/), and with technical assistance to ministries of health in Portugal and in the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries. The quality performance of this work was recognized by the World Health Organisation while assigning the Institute the status of Collaborating Centre on Health Workforce Policy and Planning.
