Objectives

TDTF aims to combine efforts with inter-national health organizations in meeting its goals. In order to do so, we plan to:

  • Educate individuals and communities regarding the transmission and prevention of tropical diseases in tropical and non-tropical areas.
  • Disseminate information on emerging and new tropical diseases that threaten under served populations within tropical regions of the world.
  • Cultivate partnerships focusing on the eradication of tropical diseases in under served populations.
  • Increase the involvement of communities in practical health behavior and sanitation models and to reduce incidence of tropical diseases in the prevalent regions by a measurable outcome set annually.
  • Orient communities to resources that are avail-able for the eradication of tropical diseases and to enlist the aid of pharmaceutical companies, through their assistance programs, research communities, and other organizations regard-ing the delivery and cost effectiveness of available treatment.
