In the framework of capacity building for surveillance and response to epidemics and public health events, the Ministry of Public Health and National Solidarity (MSPSN) in collaboration with the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET), launched the second cohort of training for the Chad Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) from 18 - 22 June 2022. A total of 20 residents were selected from three provinces: N’Djamena, Ouaddaï, and Bahr Al Ghazel.

In her welcoming remarks at the opening ceremony, the Director General recalled the importance of this training which will improve the surveillance system and effective responses to epidemics in Chad and especially increase the capacity of field actors to recognize health problems, provide descriptive analysis of data, and make decisions. She thanked CDC Atlanta and AFENET for their technical and financial support. 

Dr. Abdelsadick Hidjab Abdoulaye the Director of Surveillance and Disease Control (DSLM), said, 

‘The knowledge that will be acquired during this training will allow participants to raise the level of collection, analysis, interpretation of epidemiological surveillance data as well as to improve the completeness, timeliness and comprehensiveness of surveillance data in your respective districts and provincial health delegations. This will allow us to make surveillance very sensitive for timely detection of health threats and decision making.

He urged the participants to carefully follow all the lessons that will be given by the facilitators.

This cohort will be supervised by mentors under the leadership of the Resident Advisor – Dr. Nestor Ndakala to ensure mentorship quality and seamless application of the theory learned in the workshop1 in the field.’
