RSTMH has a long history of being supported by volunteers. In the early days of the Society, voluntary roles helped coordinate the office and formed the Council, who were responsible for governing the Society.
Last week, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine launched their 14th virtual centre focusing on climate change and planetary health.
We are in the midst of the second largest Ebola outbreak in history – second only to the 2014 West African epidemic.
At an event at the World Health Assembly last night, WHO launched its global strategy for the control and prevention of snakebite envenoming.
Our Board of Trustees is a crucial part of RSTMH, not only for governance, but also for the different and important perspectives they bring to our everyday work.
