Egypt’s Field Epidemiology Training Program was the second program to be established in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. The program targets the central, intermediate, and local levels to build preparedness and response capacity in the entire country. The program offers all the FETP modalities: the advanced (two years), the intermediate (one year), and the basic (three months and known as the Public Health Empowerment Program [PHEP]). Egypt’s FETP covered 18 governorates at the advanced level and seven at the basic level.

 

Most of the the program's graduates have continued their public health careers after graduation working as epidemiologists at the Ministry of Health and Population, with many assuming leadership positions. Many other graduates are working for international organizations.

 

Achievements

  • Participating in various campaigns such as National Polio Campaign, National Hepatitis Survey Campaign, and Preparedness for Ebola Virus Disease in 2014
  • Led initiatives such as 100 Million Healthy Lives (Egypt) and  100 Million Healthy Lives (Africa)
  • Taking part in international conferences: EIS, the EMPHNET Regional Conferences, as well as the TEPHINET and MediPIET Conferences with around 60 abstracts were accepted for oral and poster presentations
  • In response to the pandemic, enhancing surveillance systems and surveillance officer training, contact tracing, training of hospital healthcare workers, running simulation exercises for preparation for the COVID-19 imported cases, creating an emergency operating center, and more
  • Participating in investigations of local and international public health events such as the Ebola outbreak in Liberia and the Cholera outbreak in Somalia
  • Establishing the Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit which drove the program to become a key component of the national preventive medicine sector
