Our Vision

The vision of the Tropical Diseases Task Force (TDTF) is to empower communities in tropical areas towards the eradication of tropical dis-eases, which can be considered diseases of poverty, and to increase awareness of the impact and importance of tropical diseases in non-tropical areas. The TDTF engages in prevention and intervention work regarding the improvement of health and health care outcomes related to tropical dis-eases. We partner with local communities and organizations to inspire that hope and improvement are possible. We encourage local communities to develop and implement critical practices to reduce/eradicate tropical diseases, and to promote and affect positive social change for future self determination.
