    • Description:
      World Field Epidemiology Day, celebrated on September 7, recognizes the role field epidemiologists play in protecting the health of populations worldwide. It is a day devoted to raising awareness and advocating for more investments in training field epidemiologists so they can quickly respond to disease outbreaks and other public health emergencies. CDC, Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET), and other partner organizations dedicate this day to field epidemiologists worldwide.

      This year’s theme is “Empowering Field Epidemiologists for Stronger Health Systems,” which helps public health systems benefit from their expertise. Empowering field epidemiologists can mean including them in decision-making, providing clear roles for them, providing adequate support and resources, broadening career opportunities, and investing in their training. CDC’s globally recognized Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) builds a workforce of skilled disease detectives who enable countries to respond more quickly and effectively to health threats at home and around the world.
