Czech parasitologists have formerly been organized together with Slovak ones within the Czechoslovak Society for Parasitology which was founded in 1959. As the former Czechoslovak Republic has been split into two independent states in January 1993, a new Czech Society for Parasitology was established in June 1993. The Society is a member of the European Federation of Parasitologists and the World Federation of Parasitologists.
Members of the Society (179 members in May 2012) assert their activity in basic and applied research, teaching at universities, hygienic services, human and veterinary diagnostic laboratories, and other institutions where knowledge of parasites is required.
The Society includes three sections: protozoology, helminthology, and medical parazitology. See "Sections" page.
