    GHD/EMPHNET congratulates the Yemen Field Epidemiology Training Program (Y-FETP) on the recent publication of the article titled “Yemen Field Epidemiology Training Program: A Tool for Strengthening the Public Health Workforce.”

    This article describes the role of the Y-FETP, its strengths, and the challenges it faces in addressing Yemen’s National Health System (NHS) needs. It also outlines the structure and functions of the Y-FETP.

    More specifically, the article highlights how the Y-FETP has strengthened the capacity of the Yemen health workforce and how it has been instrumental in supporting the NHS, especially during times of war and in light of the current crisis and health emergency faced in the country.

    The article shows how the program provides a practical example of health systems strengthening through health workforce capacity development. It serves as an example that can be replicated in countries with similar challenges.

    Once again, we congratulate the Y-FETP on this notable achievement and we look forward to seeing this program prosper further in the future.
