the first face-to-face workshop for the second cohort of IFETP

The Sudan Field Epidemiology Training Program held the first face-to-face workshop for the second cohort of IFETP. We were excited to welcome all 13 residents, 9 of whom joined us from states outside of Khartoum state (Kassala, Red Sea, and Gedarif state). The remaining residents are from the Federal Ministry of Health.

The two-day workshop took place in Paradise Hotel in Khartoum state. Day one of the workshop covered introductory sessions on the Learning Management System, Epidemiology, and Surveillance delivered by Dr. Razan Taha, Dr. Hassan Elbushra, and Dr. Jehan Eissa, respectively. The day ended with a session on Epi Info given by Dr. Mohamd Nageeb. Day 2 of the workshop covered sessions on outbreak investigation and an overview of statistics delivered by Dr. Hassan Elbushra and Dr. Jehan Eissa.

Residents will return to their states to commence their fieldwork activities which are scheduled to commence on the first of June 2022.
