    • Description:
      The 6th annual report for the Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides a detailed picture of the division’s global health activities and its major accomplishments.

      In recent years, CDC has gone through an agency-wide reorganization that led to the restructuring and renaming of our division

      from the Division of Global Public Health Capacity Development to the Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD). In 2010, the division became a part of the newly established Center for Global Health (CGH). The division also expanded by adding the Global Public Health Informatics Program (GPHIP) and the Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR) team. Those two programs complement the previously existing programs: the Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program and Systems Development Branch (Africa), the Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program and Systems Development Branch (Asia and the Americas), and the Sustainable Management Development Program.

      The reorganization also brought to CGH the Division of Global Disease Detection & Emergency Response, the Division of Global HIV/AIDS, and the Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria. This organizational restructuring reflects CDC’s increased emphasis on global public health. Being a part of this new Center presents numerous opportunities to strengthen existing relationships, develop new partnerships, streamline activities, be more innovative, and work with partners more efficiently to build and strengthen public health systems.

      During the past year, the work of DPHSWD and its Field Epidemiology Training Programs (FETPs) continued to receive global recognition. Several new FETP programs have been established while others have expanded. We have also broadened the scope of our activities

      by working on specific tracks for non-communicable diseases, malaria, zoonoses, and immunization. Greater emphasis has also been given to improving the quality of the training and outcomes. We are developing and deploying new tools to help programs assess their quality. We are also partnering with TEPHINET and others to work on accreditation and preparing for a multi-site evaluation of the FETP. We believe that this approach will allow us to expand support for ministries of health and other partners, strengthen and improve critical public health systems, prevent and control infectious and chronic diseases, respond to international disasters, and provide a sustainable approach to building a global public health workforce that includes skilled field epidemiologists, laboratory scientists, and public health managers.

      The division’s Sustainable Management Development Program (SMDP) continues to focus on building a strong public health system and workforce equipped with competent managers and leaders. SMDP has focused its efforts on a Global Health Leadership Forum that targets public health leaders and an on-site Management for International Public Health course that targets mid-level managers. Both initiatives assist countries in building management and leadership capacity. The addition of the GPHIP and IDSR teams further expands the range of services and technical advice our division can offer partner countries.
