|Web Atlas of Medical Parasitology aims to provide educational materials for medical students primarily,
but professional workers in medical or paramedical fields may also refer to this site covering the significant parasites in the world.
Each database of protozoans, nematodes, trematodes, cestodes and arthropods contains information on the morphology,
life cycle, geographical distribution, symptoms, prevention, etc. Donations are mostly welcome to this parasite database

Dr. Kyung-Hwan Joo, as well as with grant from government upon a technical support from Medical Research Information Center (MedRIC), Korea.
