About Liberia FETP
Funded by the CDC
As a result of the Ebola epidemic, the Ministry of Health developed an Investment Plan for Building a Resilient Health System (2015 – 2021). This plan explains the steps to strengthen Liberia’s health system. This investment plan helps advance the National Health Policy and Plan (2011 – 2021). A high priority of the Investment Plan is to strengthen epidemic preparedness, surveillance, and response; this will help counties and districts build the skills to identify early signals of an epidemic and respond faster.
To help achieve this priority, the Ministry of Health started the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) in 2015. This program helps national, district and county surveillance officers, as well as other public health workers, to learn new epidemiology skills and techniques for investigating diseases and other health-related events.
