California - China Environmental Health Training Program
01/2002 - 01/2007

The California - China Environmental Health Training Program represents a partnership between the Shanghai Municipal Center for Disease Control & Prevention (SCDC), the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine (CAPM), and the California Department of Health Services (CDHS), Division of Environmental and Occupational Disease Control (DEODC) - Environmental Health Investigations Branch (EHIB), designed with the objective of addressing public health concerns in China.  This program is funded by the Fogarty International Center National Institutes of Health.

This training program is designed to foster the development of environmental health research strategies, building on existing strengths of the Chinese environmental health community, that address the most profound environmental health issues -- strategies that are best suited to regional and national needs. It is tailored to provide real-world experiences of immediate and direct benefit to the collaborating in-country agencies, and is concentrated on pragmatic approaches to environmental health issues.
