AFENET Training Programs

To date, a total number 1408 trainees have since enrolled to Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Programs (FELTPs) with 808 graduates in the Network. These graduates have played a significant role in the public health sectors of their countries.

The FELTPs are residency-based programs in applied epidemiology and public health laboratory management, combined with classroom-based instruction and mentored practical work, that allow residents to receive hands-on multi-disciplinary training in public health surveillance, outbreak investigation, laboratory management, program evaluation, research, and other aspects of epidemiology. AFENET also conducts a series of short courses aimed at enhancing public health skills of lower level health workers at the district, provincial, and national levels.
