The Australian Centre for International and Tropical Health (ACITH) is a teaching, research, and engagement facility of The University of Queensland’s School of Population Health within the Faculty of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

ACITH aims 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 include 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 is also a key objective.
