Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) is a global network of field epidemiology training programs (FETPs) and their trainees and graduates. Our member programs encompass all three training levels of the pyramidal field epidemiology training model (basic/Frontline, intermediate, and advanced). Our network includes several programs that conduct laboratory and/or veterinary training beyond the standard field epidemiology curriculum to help countries strengthen their public health laboratory systems and their ability to detect and respond to diseases of animal origin.
Our network consists of 71 programs actively training field epidemiologists in more than 100 countries. On a global scale, our network includes more than 14,000 trainees and graduates who play a critical role in improving global health security by strengthening country capacity to detect and respond to disease outbreaks.
With a secretariat based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and a global Advisory Board, TEPHINET is the only global network of FETPs and spans multiple regional FETP networks, sub-regional (multi-country) programs, and national programs.
