The first -state- of- the- art National Public Heath Training Center inaugurated on the premises of Ethiopian Health Institute (EPHI) .
The center was constructed by the United States Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) with funding from the U.S President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)
The center will serve as a training and support hub for Ethiopia’s national public health surveillance, research, and laboratory network, and will help to meet the growing demands for training in the areas of epidemiology, laboratory science, public health, and other fields that are severely lacking.
With a total floor area of more than 10,000 square meters, the multipurpose five-story building meets International Building Code (IBC) standards and features fully equipped conference rooms, an auditorium, and multimedia classrooms.
The construction of this new national training center is part of the U.S. Government’s long term commitment to strengthening infrastructure for HIV/AIDS and health systems in Ethiopia.
