FETP - Where We Work

Where We Work

FETP Networks

Our work is only possible through partnerships. Developing partnerships is an important element of establishing, supporting, and sustaining our programs. Ministries of health are our main partners in building workforce and systems capacity. Other collaborations and partnerships include other CDC units, especially CDC’s Division of Global HIV/AIDS and the Global Disease Detection Program.

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.
