Case Studies for Public Health in the Eastern Mediterranean Region - 2019

The Eastern Mediterranean Public Health Network (EMPHNET) helped to launch and establish several Field Epidemiology Training Programs (FETPs) in the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR). EMPHNET continues to provide ongoing technical and programmatic support for these program in an effort to assist countries to strengthen their public health workforce. The FETP programs in our region have relied, right now, on fewer local specific case studies tailored to EMR contexts. To offset this gap a group of researchers from different countries designed and developed a total of 12 thoughtful, detailed, and culturally tailored public health case studies to be used for teaching purposes to train public health professionals. Mainly, these case-studies cover topics such as outbreak investigations, surveillance activities, and complex emergencies.
