Institute of the University of São Paulo specialised in basic and lab research in the area of tropical illnesses. Tropical Medicine today also encompasses aspects of International Healthcare, ensuring that products or people from a certain region are not vectors of disease transmission nor that their visitors are victims of local pathologies. Within this context, the Institute of Tropical Medicine (IMT) functions as the Specialised Institute of USP (IMT-USP) with a focus on teaching, research and training of experts in the area of Tropical Diseases and International Health. In the past 80 years, the study and research of Tropical Medicine has contributed to one of the most important falls in mortality rates in the world (in Brazil this rate dropped from 50% to 5% during this period).
