Climate Information for Public Health - Curriculum for Best Practices

Public health professionals, field epidemiologists, health management workers and health policymakers are increasingly concerned about the potential impact that climate can have on public health.


Short Course Training Materials


Below is a list of instructor-led NCD-focused training modules developed specifically for short courses for non-FETP trainees.   The introductory and more advanced modules can also be given during the short course.

The goal of this type of training is to create a pool of qualified NCD implementers within a Ministry of Health, who are not part of the FETP.  Participants will be health professionals, but not necessarily with a medical degree.

Elective Training Materials

Below is a list of NCD-focused elective training materials.  They donot teach the core, required competencies, but can be given to FETP residents who have (or will have) management responsibilities or to other health professionals to build NCD capacity.   The training modules that are self-paced/ paper-based can be completed one-on-one with a mentor OR in the classroom.  The webinars will be offered by subject matter experts periodically, but can also be taught in a classroom using the PowerPoint presentations.

Core, Required NCD Training Materials: More Advanced Training

***Please note that these training modules are currently being finalized.   Once they are finalized, they will be accessible to download.***


Below is a list of NCD-focused core training modules that can be given to FETP trainees after the introductory modules.   There is one webinar and five self-paced/paper-based training modules. The self-paced materials can be given one-on-one with the guidance of a mentor, or in a classroom.
