Data for Decision Making (DDM) is an accredited training course for the Pacific. Currently, there exist specific DDM training workshops at learning centres in Guam.
DDM is a Pacific adapted curriculum originally developed by CDC for their Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP). DDM is the first tier of several tiers of Epi training being jointly implemented jointly by SPC, PIHOA, FNU and CDC. It is an initiative of the SPC/WHO Pacific PH Surveillance Network for building Epi literacy and competency in the Pacific and addressing our data needs in the region.
For more information on DDM training, please contact Ms. Bertha Taijeron, Program Coordinator, at (671) 735-7125 (email here).
