Abstract

It has been an honor to serve as President of the Society for the past year. During this year, I have been fortunate in having the able assistance of the officers, councillors and committee members, all of whom have made great contributions to the Society. Many of these officers have unstintingly devoted a great amount of their time to Society affairs.

Traditionally, tropical medicine has been at the forefront of medical programs. The first pathogenic agent described by science was a fungus, , which causes a disease that occurs today almost only in the tropics. Probably the first epidemiological study using modern inductive reasoning was Snow's study of cholera in London and its relation to the Broad Street Pump. Studies on host-parasite relationships, on transmission of disease by intermediate hosts, on the role of reservoir hosts were mostly in the realm of tropical medicine.
