    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), through its Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD), has been working in Iraq since 2009 to reduce the burden of major public health problems by building capacity and strengthening public health systems. DPHSWD supports the Iraqi Ministry of Health (MoH) in training public health officers through the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP). Areas of focus include disease surveillance, outbreak response, and program evaluation through training programs in applied epidemiology. This collaboration includes a two-year Iraq FETP, associated short-courses for officers at the national and sub-national level, and supporting outbreak response and investigations throughout the country.
