EMPHNET: Eastern Mediterranean Public Health Network
Network established in: 2009
EMPHNET works with countries in the Eastern Mediterranean Region (Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Pakistan, and Yemen) to strengthen public health systems in an effort to contribute to improved health outcomes. We aim at strengthening public health capacity with a specific focus on applied epidemiology. We are the only Public Health Network in the region and our work is an accumulation of collaborative efforts with Ministries of Health of countries in the region. We support Field Epidemiology Training Programs (FETPs) as a mechanism for advancing public health workforce capacity in the region.
