  • Description:
    The Kenya Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (FELTP) was started in 2004 in Nairobi. This hands-on program trains public health leaders while providing epidemiologic services to national and sub-national health authorities in Kenya and beyond.

    The program places emphasis on service, providing real results to the Kenya Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation (MOPHS) as residents pursue a Master of Science awarded through the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology.

    The FETLP is a 2-year in-service training program in applied epidemiology and public health laboratory management. It involves 25% classroom instruction and 75% field assignments.

    Residents spend 20 months of full-placement at various sections in the MOPHS or other institutions. They frequently travel to all parts of Kenya to conduct disease investigations, surveillance evaluations, surveys, and applied research on national health problems.
