About the Conference

TEPHINET conferences provide opportunities for trainees and graduates of TEPHINET-member field epidemiology training programs (FETPs) to present their work before an international audience of public health practitioners through oral and poster presentations.

In addition, TEPHINET conferences aim to provide participants with the latest public health information through plenary sessions and pre-conference workshops.

The networking opportunities offered by TEPHINET conferences are invaluable in efforts to increase global health collaboration and build the capacity of public health systems and health surveillance in all countries.

TEPHINET hosts both global and regional conferences. Regional conferences such as this one often focus on issues relevant to their particular region. For example, in 2016, the 9th TEPHINET Regional Scientific Conference of the Americas—held in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay—featured a symposium on Zika, a critical issue at the time.

This year’s conference theme is “Preparing for the Next Pandemic: Multidisciplinary Connections in Field Epidemiology.” This conference will give attendees an opportunity to engage with key players at the forefront of various field epidemiology efforts as we work together to shape our way forward.

Join us and learn about what’s new and innovative in field epidemiology, health surveillance, and rapid response. Observe how health service delivery in the local context strengthens health security worldwide. Enhance your knowledge and network with people from all over the world.
