The theme for World Field Epidemiology Day 2022 is Empowering Field Epidemiologists for Stronger Health Systems.
When field epidemiologists are empowered within health institutions, public health systems benefit from their expertise. Empowerment can mean that field epidemiologists are involved in key decision-making processes, have clearly defined roles with adequate resources and support, have access to career opportunities, are recognized as a profession, and undergo training that is well integrated within the health system.
We invite you and/or your institutions to join us in sharing stories and examples of how empowering field epidemiologists has directly benefited public health systems in your country.
TEPHINET will collect submissions until May 1 and use these in developing our social media campaign for World Field Epidemiology Day on September 7.
