It is imperative that health and morbidity data in India at the district level are collected regularly, analyzed, and interpreted with appropriate epidemiological tools. With that in mind, the government of India, since 1990, has strengthened its training of applied epidemiology. The Field Epidemiology Training Program was implemented to create a capability in field epidemiology within the existing health services system to help health authorities at the district level make informed decisions in the delivery of health care. This paper describes the existing health profile, deficiencies/gaps and justifications, program objectives and components, the expected outcome, the project plan, and achievements.
