TEPHINET is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019-2020 Cancer Small Grants. The three awardees are alumni of the field epidemiology training programs (FETPs) in Bangladesh, Haiti, and Pakistan.

Through TEPHINET’s small grants program, trainees and graduates of FETPs have the opportunity to apply for awards, generally ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 (USD), to provide funding to support non-research projects aimed at strengthening local health surveillance activities.

This year’s cancer projects have been made possible by the generous support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Center for Global Health.
