About Pic 1

Welcome to Philandtropical; a site of anecdotes and stories collected from an interest in Tropical Health and Disease.

Early exposures, studies and work have influenced my enthusiasm for the subject. But here is a disclaimer – I don’t know nearly enough yet! I have barely scratched the surface.

I hope to collect stories, anecdotes and pearls. They’re often best heard from the people who live them – so in due time I will think about how this can be done. If you like the site, want to add anything or suggest any changes, please get in touch! (Contact e-mail at the bottom of this page).
