    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through its Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD), has been working in Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan) since 2003 to build regional capacity and strengthen public health systems. DPHSWD supports the participating countries’ ministries of health (MoH) in training public health officers through a two-year regional Field Epidemiology Training Program, located in Almaty, Kazakhstan, that focuses on applied epidemiology, disease surveillance, outbreak response, and program evaluation.

    To improve capacity for effective and timely response, DPHSWD also provides technical assistance and training in laboratory management, and develops integrated and standardized information systems for data collection, tracking, reporting, and exchange.
