Tina Rezvani, Communications Manager

The African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and TEPHINET are hosting a weeklong training in "Epidemiology in Humanitarian Emergencies" for alumni of AFENET-member Field Epidemiology (and Laboratory) Training Programs (FE[L]TPs) and members of ACODD (the AFENET Corps of Disease Detectives).

The training will take place in Uganda from November 11-16, 2019, and will be taught (in English) by experts from CDC and WHO.

If you are interested in attending this training, please complete the short form available at this link by Monday, September 16, 2019.

We are looking to train African FETP alumni for emergency response in the next year. Therefore, if you apply and are accepted, we will ask your supervisor for approval to be deployable to an emergency in the next year.

We will notify the accepted participants by September 20 in order to begin making travel arrangements. TEPHINET will cover expenses for 20 FETP alumni to attend the training. 

For questions about this training, and/or about TEPHINET's work in facilitating emergency response mobilization, please contact Lisandro Torre at
