There were two main objectives of the Army funding to the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene ASTMH. The first was to support and enhance the Annual Meeting of the ASTMH, as a means for promoting research, collaboration between scientists, and exchange of information on the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention and control of tropical diseases. The second objective was to increase the opportunities for scientists from developing countries, students and young investigators to participate in the Annual Meeting. Through this funding, the ASTMH was able to sponsor 15 scientists, students and young investigators from developing countries to participate and present at the last three Annual Meetings. Both objectives were met and the funding was critical to the promotion of various advances in prevention and treatment as well as research for tropical diseases that are prevalent in developing countries.
