Australian Centre for International and Tropical Health
The Australian Centre for International and Tropical Health (ACITH) was a teaching, research and engagement facility of our School. It aimed to improve the health of populations in Australia and globally through excellence in education, research and service by the provision of first-class coursework and research degree courses in global and tropical public health for Australian students, students from tropical developing countries and other students with a strong interest in these areas.
Other objectives included the development of superior facilities for research and research training, to support global and Australian public health programs and the transfer of knowledge and technology to tropical developing countries, and to make special provision for the training of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The maintenance and further development of strong collaborative links with an extensive number of national and global institutions was also a key objective.
