9th Southeast Asia and Western Pacific Bi-regional TEPHINET Scientific Conference, Vientiane 2018

"Investing in Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)"

The Ministry of Health of the Lao PDR, in partnership with TEPHINET and SAFETYNET is hosting the 9th Southeast Asia and Western Pacific Bi-Regional TEPHINET Scientific Conference in Vientiane on November 5 to 9, 2018.

With conference theme, “Investing in FETP in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals,” the event will consist of pre-conference workshops on the first day, followed by the four-day conference proper. The conferenceprovides a valuable opportunity for sharing of information among field epidemiologists in the two regions.

The event also offers opportunities to showcase outbreak investigations and other public health practice/research activities done by current trainees and graduates of the FET/AET programs. It also creates a worthwhile forum for networking among healthcare professionals from the many participant countries with their counterparts, thereby forging stronger alliances and strengthening the network.


The conference sessions and poster presentations provide venues to share experience and successes on FETP outputs and challenges in disease prevention and control, thereby advocating for further investment in field or applied epidemiology training.

SAFETYNET has negotiated for special rates in Malinamphu Hotel and Don Chan Palace Hotel and Convention. Please see rates below. SAFETYNET reserved 50 rooms each in both hotels. 


If you reserve, we do NOT advise reserving directly to the hotels as they will give you the published rates which is about double the price they gave SAFETYNET.
