First Regional Field Epidemiology Training Programee For Veterinarians (FETPV) For SAARC Countries
PDF File Size: 743 KB | Download   
Some shortcomings in the ability to rapidly detect, report and respond to Highly Pathogenic Emerging (and re-emerging) Diseases (HPEDs) in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) region have been demonstrated as a challenge over the years. Failure to detect disease pathogens is directly related to weak field epidemiology and laboratory diagnostic capacity.

Early detection of animal diseases very much depends on the availability and capacity of veterinary field epidemiologists to conduct proper outbreak investigations,assess, analyze and report the findings effectively and rapidly. The Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP), a network of in-service Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) is a globally recognized long-term field epidemiology program for the public health sector. This two-year training course provides training to support outbreak investigations, analysis of surveillance data, field research and provision of practical recommendations for decision makers. This FETP model promotes the
concept of “training through service”. Based on its success in public health, the model was adopted for veterinarians through a joint activity of Department of Livestock Development, Thailand (DLD) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of United Nation‟s Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Disease (ECTAD) based in Bangkok,Thailand. A project with support from United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and European Union (EU) initiated the two-year “Field Epidemiology Training Program for Veterinarians, FETPV” course in 2008 for Asia and the Pacific. A short-term (one month) pre-requisite regional field epidemiology training course for veterinarians, called„Veterinary Field Epidemiology in Action” (FVEA) was also initiated by the same organizers.
