    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), through its Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD), launched the Tanzania Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (T-FELTP) in 2008. The program builds public health workforce capacity and strengthens public health systems and institutions. This hands-on approach builds capacity while providing epidemiologic and laboratory services to national, regional, and district health authorities throughout Tanzania.

    The goal of T-FELTP is to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) to collect and utilize disease data, and manage national programs by expanding and strengthening surveillance programs and improving laboratory management. The Government of Tanzania (GoT) is committed to strengthening its response to communicable and non- communicable diseases through building the capacity of its health workers in areas of surveillance, epidemiology, and improving diagnosis through training in epidemiology and laboratory management.
