Abstract: The Ethiopian Field Epidemiology training program started in 2009. Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program is an in-service training program in field epidemiology adapted from United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program.

The School of Public Health (SPH) Addis Ababa University, the Federal Ministry of Health of Ethiopia (MOH) Ethiopian Public Health Institute (EPHI), and the Ethiopian Public Health Association (EPHA)/CDC Ethiopia are running the program together. During residency I and II, I produced this body of work, which contains all my outputs. Among the out puts which were two outbreak Investigations in Chapter I was conducted descriptive followed by cases to controls study was used during investigations. In the first outbreak, we identified factors that contributed to measles outbreak in Cheta district, Kefa zone. The highest incidence in less than 15 years of age, the risk factors includes low vaccine coverage, Overcrowding, contact history with measles cases and lack of knowledge of mothers about measles.

Trends and seasonality of malaria disease were determined. The average estimated annual incidence of reported total malaria for the calendar years(2011-2015) annual incidence of total malaria report dropped from 119/1000 to 9/1000 population.
