HELP US SUPPORT THE ASTMH FUNDRAISER

These donations will help support our shared commitment to reducing the worldwide burden of tropical diseases and improving global health, equity, and social justice. A portion of these funds will go to providing Travel Awards for three female qualified students, earlier-career investigators, or scientists actively working in the tropical medicine field to attend the ASTMH Annual Meeting.

Throughout March and April, all donations made to Parasites Without Borders will be matched by PWB and donated to the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH). PWB pledges a minimum donation of $20,000 to ASTMH and will match all of your donations, for a total gift to ASTMH of up to $40,000. A portion of these funds will go to providing Travel Awards for three qualified female students, early-career investigators, or scientists actively working in the tropical medicine field to attend the ASTMH Annual Meeting.

One in three attendees of the ASTMH Annual Meeting is a Student or a Trainee. A significant percentage of them hail from Low- and Low- Middle-Income countries. Awardees are selected by the Travel Awards Committee based on abstract quality, research results, and the relevance of the applicant’s work to the field of tropical medicine. Travel Award recipients participate in the meeting through oral or poster presentations. PWB-supported Travel Awards will be dedicated to female Students or Trainees who would not otherwise be able to attend.

The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, founded in 1903, is the largest international scientific organization of experts dedicated to reducing the worldwide burden of tropical infectious diseases and improving global health. ASTMH accomplishes this through generating and sharing scientific evidence, informing health policies and practices, fostering career development, recognizing excellence, and advocating for investment in tropical medicine/global health research.
