International Experience and Technical Assistance (IETA) Program
Are you looking for an outstanding opportunity to gain experience in international public health work? Then, the International Experience and Technical Assistance (IETA) training program may be for you!
The International Experience and Technical Assistance (IETA) program is a developmental training program for Federal public health employees offered by the Center for Global Health (CGH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. Specifically, IETA is a professional development/technical assistance program that takes place over a 12-month period. It consists of attendance at three (3) workshops in Atlanta, Georgia (3-4 days each) and a supervised short-term (12-week minimum) overseas assignment with an international public health program. All cohort participants serve overseas between May and November in one of the 50-plus countries where CDC has an overseas presence.
In 2012, IETA Cohort 14's twenty-two participants represent CDC, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Office of the Secretary (OS). They served in Cambodia, Haiti, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Thailand, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. They are working with the CGH/Overseas Operations Office, the Division of Global HIV/AIDS (DGHA), the Division of Global Disease Detection and Emergency Response (DGDDER), and the Division of Global Migration & Quarantine (DGMQ).
