GHD|EMPHNET worked with the Ministry of Health and Population towards building workforce capacity in field epidemiology, rapid response, polio assets transitioning, and other priority areas within the public health system.

 

Expanding Field Epidemiology Capacities

 

GHD|EMPHNET has worked with the Ministry of Health and Population (MOHP) and international partners in building the capacities of one of the first Field Epidemiology Training Programs (FETP) in the region, the Egypt FETP which was founded in 1993. Over the past ten years, FETP residents and graduates participated in regional training workshops which GHD|EMPHNET conducted to build residents' and graduates' capacities in rapid response to emergencies, scientific research, scientific writing, among other subjects. With support from GHD|EMPHNET and with the aim to expand the country’s capacities in field epidemiology and outbreak investigation, the MOHP launched the Public Health Empowerment Program-Basic Field Epidemiology (PHEP-BFE) in 2017. The PHEP-BFE is an in-service program that provides didactic and field training in the fundamentals of surveillance, outbreak investigation, and emergency response. In 2021, GHD|EMPHNET also supported Egypt in launching the intermediate, one-year program modality.

 

Expanding Rapid Response Workforce Capacity

 

GHD|EMPHNET’s support for public health workforce development extended to include Rapid Response Teams (RRTs) training. GHD|EMPHNET supported the MOHP in conducting a series of RRT training workshops targeting health workers from governorates across Egypt. These RRT training workshops were important to strengthen the public health workforce capacity to effectively respond to outbreaks and other public health emergencies. Many of these RRT members were mobilized to assist the MOHP in responding to public health emergencies.

 

Pioneering Polio Legacy Transitioning

 

GHD|EMPHNET worked with the MOHP in strengthening sustainable public health capacity for polio eradication and routine immunization activities. GHD|EMPHNET supported the MOHP in utilizing its strong polio eradication program experience. Through this joint effort, Egypt’s domestic polio assets were used to address low population immunity for measles in three frontier governorates: Aswan, Matrouh, and Red Sea, which are pockets of continuously missed children, particularly observed in the 2014-2015 measles outbreak. Between 2019-2020, GHD|EMPHNET supported the MOHP in utilizing the experience and lessons learned from the implementation in the afore-mentioned governorates towards expanding this effort into new four governorates: Cairo, Giza, Kalubia, and Sharkia. The expansion maximized the use of national polio program assets in strengthening immunization activities and addressing challenges in low immunization coverage areas in relation to measles and other vaccine preventable diseases (VPDs) with particular focus on acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), fever, and rash surveillance.

 

In 2017, the MOHP in collaboration with GHD|EMPHNET began the surveillance of Congenital Rubella Syndrome (CRS) at ten sentinel sites throughout the country to use CRS surveillance data to monitor the impact of the national rubella vaccination strategy as well as the progress towards rubella/CRS elimination and in turn take necessary corrective measures in due time.

 

To respond to identified training needs for health staff working for the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI), the MOHP and GHD|EMPHNET collaborated in training peripheral staff from Primary Health Centers in various governorates across Egypt. Starting in 2017, the training targeted 175 districts in 18 governorates of Egypt to enable EPI staff to contribute to the improvement of EPI activities and achievement of its objectives.

 

Empowering Communities for COVID-19 Response

 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the Partnership to Accelerate COVID-19 Testing (PACT) initiative in August 2020. The PACT initiative aimed to strengthen capacity to test for COVID-19 across Africa with emphasis on countries that have only minimal capacity. In Egypt, GHD|EMPHNET in collaboration with the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET) led the roll out and implementation of a community contact tracing strategy in support of formal COVID-19 response.
