FETP - Where We Work
Where We Work
CDC has helped establish 50 FETPs that have trained more than 2,800 graduates from 69 countries. Approximately 80% of graduates work in government in their home countries and many fill leadership positions in the public health systems.

Many of the countries that host or send residents to a neighboring country’s FETP collaborate with the Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET), a global network of Field Epidemiology Training Programs, to share resources and best practices. Regional FETP networks also exist, including:
- The African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET);
- The Eastern Mediterranean Public Health Network (EMPHNET);
- The European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology training (EPIET);
- RedSur (the network of Latin American FETPs); and
- The Southeast Asia Field Epidemiology and Technology Network (SAFETYNET).
Externally, we have built strong partnerships with many national and international organizations such as the World Health Organization, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Department of State, the Department of Defense, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the government of the United Kingdom, Ellison Medical Foundation, the Carter Center, and the World Bank.
