  • Description:
    For more than 60 years, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been dedicated to protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury and disability. Since 1980, CDC, through the Field Epidemiology Training Programs (FETP), has worked with ministries of health around the world, along with other partners, to strengthen national and local public health systems and to address the severe shortage of skilled epidemiologists worldwide. FETPs provide training in applied epidemiology to build a pool of public health workers able to use science and data to appropriately respond to public health threats, including polio, cholera, tuberculosis, HIV, malaria, and emerging infectious diseases of animal origin.

    As part of their mission to strengthen public health systems globally, FETPs also assist countries to meet their core capacity requirements for surveillance and response under the revised International Health Regulations (IHR, 2005).
