    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), through its Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD), has been working in China since 2001 when the Chinese Field Epidemiology Training Program (C-FETP) was established. C-FETP officers spend two years in field practice working on surveillance and threats to the public health throughout China. They provide decision-makers and other key constituencies with the highest quality evidence-based recommendations and information to help guide China’s public health policy and practice.

    The C-FETP has three important outputs. 1) It develops field epidemiologists for both the provinces of China and the national Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. 2) It develops mentors for future C-FETP officers to ensure continuing improvement of the training. 3) It provides findings of epidemiologic investigations and surveillance directed at solutions to priority public health problems.
