It started its activities in Brussels in 1906, and has been based in its distinctive buildings in Antwerp since 1931. Since then it has carried the name of Prince Leopold, the later King Leopold III. Today, it works with its partners all over the world towards a common goal of "Health Care for All".

Education

On behalf of the Belgian Directorate-General for Development Cooperation (DGDC), it carries out a wide-ranging international programme of capacity strengthening in the South. For the Belgian Ministries of Public Health and Social Affairs it has the role of national reference centre for tropical diseases and as regional reference centre for the diagnosis and treatment of HIV/AIDS. Internationally, the ITM participates in activities and collaborations all over the world.

Student Life

Campus life

The street where the campus is located was named after Saint Rochus, the patron saint of people afflicted by the plague or other infectious diseases. Given the nature of ITM's mission, it seemed fitting that he would also lend his name to our new campus.ITM was able to purchase and renovate the Rochus Campus with the support of the Flemish Ministry of Education, the Flemish Ministry of Monuments and Landscapes, the Province and City of Antwerp and the National Lottery.
