    In 2008, at the request of the Government of Rwanda, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) office in Rwanda collaborated with the Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD), the Rwanda Ministry of Health and other external partners to establish the Rwanda Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (R-FELTP). In May 2010, in partnership with PEPFAR and the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET), the R-FELTP was launched.

    The goals of the R-FELTP are to build workforce capacity by training health sector leaders in applied epidemiology and public health laboratory practice; to strengthen public health systems, including laboratory participation in disease surveillance and field investigations; and to strengthen public health institutions by providing epidemiologic and laboratory services to national and sub-national health authorities in Rwanda. The overarching goal of the program is to reduce the burden of major public health problems in Rwanda.
