EPHA Formed Training and Research Advisory Group (TRAG)

Chaired by Dr Filimona Bisirat, president of EPHA, the Ethiopian Public Health Association (EPHA) formed a Training and Research Advisory Group (TRAG) that consist of 14 resource persons having extensive and practical experience in undertaking researches and managing training programs.

The formation of the Training and Research Advisory Group of EPHA took place on June 6, 2014 where Ato Tesfa Demilew, the Research Training and Publication Director of EPHA, presented the existing status and future directions of the EPHA’s Training and Research Functions, and the steps taken in establishing the TRAG, as a sort of back ground.

Accordingly, a thorough deliberation was followed by the group members on a range of issues including but not limited to the concurrence between the EPHA’s TRAG plan and the FMoH’s current initiative of institutionalizing all research and training activities, the existing capacity of EPHA to serve as a research and training center of excellence, the research thematic areas and the existing internal capacity of EPHA to undertake the growing research and training demands.
