FETP - CDC-Supported FETPs
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, through the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP), has been dedicated to protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury and disability for more than six decades. FETP works 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. Training is provided 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.
