ECDC Public health training strategy 2015

Corporate publication

The Public Health Training Strategy proposes three strategic objectives in the context of ECDC’s corporate mission and the legal context within which the Centre works. The objectives address workforce strengthening, maintaining a network of training partnerships and further developing a virtual training centre function, in order to support and assist Member States and the Commission to have sufficient numbers of trained specialists for key functions in disease prevention and control.

The strategy outlines the target audience for training activities and introduces a needs based approach, following recommendations from the Internal Audit Service. In addition, the strategy proposes how ECDC training efforts could be complemented by Member States’ efforts in training public health professionals.
