Additional Information:
“United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) FELTP program responded to a request from the Afghan Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) to build capacity for epidemiology. Under the program, USAID funded the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop a Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (FELTP). The two-year program was designed to build the capacity of entry- and mid-level health professionals in applied epidemiology, surveillance, and enhanced public health practice. FELTP officers and graduates apply use their skills to strengthen the country’s public health surveillance and response systems and improve disease detection, control, and prevention.”
