The Swedish Society for Tropical Medicine (Svensk Förening för Tropikmedicin) was founded in 1961 and has about 200 members with various medical backgrounds; physicians, nurses, biomedical scientists, researchers and students and we form a section within the Swedish Society of Medicine (Svenska Läkaresällskapet). 

The aim of the Swedish Society for Tropical Medicine is: to promote the development of tropical medicine in terms of clinical management, education and research through networking in the field. The Society organises one symposium or scientific meeting per year, with focus on tropical diseases or migration health. They announce a scholarship for research in low-income countries; and provide information and contacts to students in health care who wish to carry out project work or clinical practice in tropical areas.
