Description and Aims of the German Society for Tropical Medicine and International Health (DTG)
The DTG was founded in 1907 and currently has about 1000 members. As a scientific society, it aims to bring together medical researchers, veterinarians, natural and social scientists who practice, research, advise or are particularly interested in the fields of tropical medicine and international health. The DTG is a member of the Association of Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF) and of the Federation of European Societies of Tropical Medicine and International Health (FESTMIH). It is a co-organiser of the Northern European Conferences of Travel medicine (NECTM). It is affiliated and represented in the Editorial Board the the journal Travel Medicine and Infectious Diseases.
The specialist areas of Tropical Medicine and International Health deal with the medical and health problems in the tropics and subtropics and in developing countries as well as of travellers traveling to or returning from these regions. This includes all aspects of clinical medicine, hygiene and microbiology, epidemiology, social and environmental medicine and related subjects.
In addition to research into and control of diseases of the tropics and developing countries, an important area of activity is the diagnosis and treatment of imported diseases among travelers and migrants, as well as preventive medical advice and care for travelers before and after their stay in tropics, subtropics and developing countries (Travel Medicine). The DTG has set up a Standing Committee for Travel Medicine (StAR) for this task consisting of representatives of various tropical institutes, societies and institutions, which prepares evidence-based statements on current travel medicine related questions.
The tasks of the Society include the exchange of experience between Germany and abroad, the promotion of research and teaching, the promotion of young talents, the support of further education in this field, both in Germany and in tropical countries, as well as advice for authorities and organizations and education in the field of tropical and travel medicine, including the development of up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines and recommendations. The company pursues exclusively non-profit and scientific purposes within the meaning of the non-profit regulation of 24.12.1963.
