TEPHINET is pleased to announce the five recipients of the 2022-2023 South Caucasus Small Grants in Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases. Funded through the generous support of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) South Caucasus Office (SCO), these grants provide an opportunity for FETP fellows or recent graduates from Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Ukraine to conduct non-research investigations focused on surveillance, program evaluation, or public health activities that advance global health security.

The CDC SCO offers these small grants to support mentored, well-defined projects by fellows and graduates of the South Caucasus Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (SC-FELTP) to collate, analyze, synthesize, interpret, and use epidemiologic data to inform activities relevant to infectious disease control in their country.

Congratulations to the awardees!
