Ethiopia FELTP

 Ethiopian Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Programme


 

Background

The Ethiopian Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (EFELTP) is a two-year, in-service training program in applied epidemiology and public health laboratory practice overseen by the Human Health Development Directorate of the Federal Ministry of Health. EFELTP operates as a collaborative effort among eight universities (Addis Ababa University, Saint Paulos Millennium Medical College, Gondar University, Bahir Dar University, Mekele University, Hawassa University, Haramaya University, and Jimma University), regional health bureaus, and other stakeholders, including the Ministry of Agriculture, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). EFELTP aims to train leaders in field epidemiology (human and veterinary) and public health practice and to provide epidemiologic services to federal, regional, and zonal government health institutions across Ethiopia. During their training, residents provide service to the Ministry of Health and regional health bureaus through long-term field placements. EFELTP’s field epidemiology component is modeled after the CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program. Residents spend 75 percent of their time in the field and 25 percent of their time in the classroom. EFELTP’s objectives include: • Strengthening capacity to respond to public health emergencies such as outbreaks, epidemics, natural disasters, and emerging infectious diseases • Strengthening public health and veterinary surveillance systems • Strengthening laboratory participation in surveillance and field investigation • Strengthening the linkage between public health and veterinary epidemiology • Conducting research activities on priority public health problems
